The purpose of the Health Resources and Services Administration (HRSA) RCORP-Planning project is to Support community members through Prevention, Treatment and Recovery for Substance Use disorder.
The overall goal of the program is to reduce the morbidity and mortality associated with opioid overdoses in high-risk, rural communities by strengthening the capacity of multi-sector consortia to address one or more of three focus areas at community, county, state, and/or regional levels: (1) prevention—reducing the occurrence of opioid addiction among new and at-risk individuals, as well as fatal, opioid-related overdoses, through community and provider education and harm reduction measures, including the strategic placement of overdose-reversing devices, such as naloxone; (2) treatment—implementing or expanding access to evidence-based practices for OUD treatment, such as medication-assisted treatment (MAT); and (3) recovery—expanding peer recovery and treatment options that help people start and stay in recovery.
