Project Lazarus

The Project Lazarus Model is a public health model based on the twin premises that overdose deaths are preventable and that all communities are responsible for their own health. The Model can be conceptualized as a wheel, with three core components in the “hub” and seven components that make up the “spokes.”

This wheel is always in motion since coalitions and communities are always evolving. A coalition may start with a focus in one or two areas and then expand to other areas as the availability of resources changes, community sector engagement increases, or the nature of the problem shifts.
