LIVE.LONG.DC. (LLDC), the District’s Strategic Plan to Reduce Opioid Use, Misuse, and Related Deaths, is the underlying strategic framework that guides the opioid work and opioid fund investments. LLDC 3.0 reflects the District’s commitment to continuously evaluate the work to modify our plan to adopt new strategies that address the changing landscape and emerging issues and incorporate best practices. LLDC 3.0 introduces strategic adjustments that address the pressing requirement for workforce development, target populations with growing needs, and increase public education. Since the release of LLDC in December 2019 and the modified LLDC 2.0 in August 2021, we have mobilized a movement of health experts, individuals and families with personal experience, treatment providers, District and Federal government agencies, and community-based partners to act together with urgency and shared purpose. LLDC outlines the strategies to tackle this crisis head-on with proven, evidence-based prevention, harm reduction, treatment, and recovery services to save and change lives.
