For Media

The Georgia Opioid Crisis Abatement Trust appreciates the assistance of the media in publicizing the Trust’s work to support opioid addiction prevention, treatment, and recovery services. You’re encouraged to review the information contained on this website for details on the opioid crisis, the national settlement, and the Georgia Opioid Crisis Abatement Trust’s process for fund disbursement – particularly our FAQs. Accountability data will be posted on this site as it becomes available.

Please also help us by publicizing this website as the official site for Georgia’s opioid settlement program. You can help fight fraudulent websites and scams that may seek information or money from those looking to apply for settlement funds or find treatment resources. The Georgia Opioid Crisis Abatement Trust will never ask for payment from an applicant.

As always, please note in your reporting that people facing an opioid addiction or other emotional crisis, may call 988, a free, confidential resource available 24/7.

Finally, if you have additional questions or would like to request an interview with a representative of the Georgia Opioid Crisis Abatement Trust, please fill out our Contact Form. Please be sure to indicate the media outlet you represent and any applicable deadline(s) so we may route your inquiry appropriately.
