Prescribe Safe, a program led by Montage Health, has partnered with more than 35 local business and agencies to address the opioid addiction problem since 2014. By 2018, Monterey County had improved to have the second-lowest opioid-related death rate of any county in California. But, in the last several years, counterfeit medications have entered the market, many with a toxic or lethal dose of fentanyl, causing a staggering increase in opioid-related overdoses and deaths. Prescribe Safe aims to save and improve lives by helping to prevent and address addiction.
