This is an academic paper that describes the development of a survey that assesses community readiness to address prescription opioid misuse. Interventions can be ineffective in communities that are disinterested in change, so it is important to utilize interventions that are specific to the community’s level of readiness given that coalitions will have limited resources and stakeholders will have diverse agendas. The entire survey is available as an appendix in the paper.
