About us

About OD Free Marin


OD Free Marin is a community-based, overdose prevention coalition comprised of four action teams and a steering committee. Hundreds of community partners, individuals, organizations, and agencies from across sectors have contributed to the coalition over the past decade. Working together we strive to ensure a coordinated, comprehensive, and collective approach to our work.  We align our priorities with those of  the California Department of Public Health (CDPH) to provide innovative and equitable solutions aimed at reducing overdose and increasing the health and wellness of community members across Marin County.
