The Council was created in 2021 by the Tennessee General Assembly in Public Chapter 491 to manage the disbursement of proceeds from lawsuits relating to opioids.  The Council upholds the responsibility to ensure the disbursements of these funds go toward funding programs, strategies, expenditures, and other actions designed to prevent and address the misuse and abuse of opioid products and treat or mitigate opioid use or related disorders or other effects of the opioid epidemic.

TDMHSAS and the Council are committed to providing individuals with disabilities an equal opportunity to participate in and benefit from TDMHSAS programs, activities, and services.
