Community stakeholders committed to increasing access to addiction treatment.

We bring together a broad group of community stake holders committed to increasing access to addiction treatment, decreasing opioid overuse, and reducing overdose deaths. As advocates and community leaders from public health, hospitals, addiction treatment, medical societies, law enforcement, health plans, and other groups come to the table -- it is our goal to find creative ways to solve the opioid epidemic. 

The Rural Communities Opioid Response Program (RCORP) is a multi-year initiative supported by the Health Resources and Services Administration (HRSA) to address barriers to access in rural communities related to substance use disorder (SUD), including opioid use disorder (OUD). RCORP funds multi-sector consortia to enhance their ability to implement and sustain SUD/OUD prevention, treatment, and recovery services in underserved rural areas.
