On February 25, 2022, the National Prescription Opiate Litigation Plaintiffs’ Executive Committee confirmed participation of over 90% of litigating local governments nationwide in the $26 billion global opioid settlements finalized with the “Big Three” drug distributors ‐ AmerisourceBergen, Cardinal Health, and McKesson ‐ and opioid manufacturer Johnson & Johnson. The settlements require 85% of funds be allocated to programs that will help address the ongoing opioid crisis through treatment, education, and prevention efforts.
