We Value Your Feedback

Following a court case, the Commonwealth of Virginia settled its lawsuit with prescription opioid manufacturers and distributors. The City of Virginia Beach agreed to participate in these settlements, which resulted in funds being made available to the City to address the ongoing opioid epidemic.

To ensure that we are meeting the needs of our community, the Department of Human Services will hold a series of listening sessions to ensure we are delivering a community-driven and inclusive approach in the treatment options available in Virginia Beach.

A public survey is available on the "Survey" tab and will remain open through Tuesday, Oct. 31.
