This information is then synthesized into the Annual Threat Assessment to summarize narcotic statistics from the prior year and to forecast drug-related threats and trends for the immediate future. The SC works in coordination with Massachusetts public health officials and the CDC to conduct the Overdose Response Strategy and assist in community prevention and treatment initiatives.
