Grants to West Virginia businesses and agencies to expand and improve residential substance abuse treatment services in eligible areas. Funding is intended to help stem the opioid crisis in the State and to reduce overdose deaths. Applicants serving Clay, Fayette, Kanawha, Nicholas, and Roane Counties are eligible.
The focus of the current Announcement of Funding Availability is increasing access to residential treatment services that are integrated into a comprehensive and recovery oriented system of care.
DHHR’s mission is to join with communities and families in providing opportunities for citizens to achieve health and independence, in part, by providing resources that deliver an array of SUD treatment services through a variety of providers. DHHR is requesting proposals for SUD residential treatment services, initially supported through the Ryan Brown Addiction Prevention and Recovery Fund, as part of a comprehensive statewide plan to expand regional, recovery oriented substance use and co-occurring services for adults with an emphasis on services to address the current opioid crisis. The Department is seeking vendors who can provide SUD Residential Treatment Services in the designated geographic area by adding to existing programs or developing and implementing new capacity.
The Department’s intention is that an expansion in SUD treatment services will result in a decrease of overdose deaths as well as a decrease in other human and economic costs to the State.
Target Population: Individuals with SUD (with or without co-occurring mental health disorders) for whom these services are deemed appropriate per the American Society of Addiction Medicine (ASAM) criteria. Within the target population, including but not limited to, priority populations include:
- Individuals that have experienced an overdose in past 30 days
- Pregnant women
- IV drug users
- Custodial parents of minor children
DHHR supports high quality evidence-based practices that promote social and emotional well-being, prevention approaches, person-centered interventions and self-directed/recovery driven services and supports. High-quality practices are responsive to the current stage of an individual’s recovery journey and respect multiple pathways to recovery. They are sensitive to the person’s culture, gender, race, ethnicity, sexual orientation, and religious affiliation. In addition, the provision of high-quality behavioral health services entails attending to the trauma-related issues that often underlie behavioral health challenges. These expectations are consistent with SAMHSA’s Recovery Oriented System of Care principles and values.
The work of the grantee resulting from this AFA shall result in:
1. Additional SUD residential treatment capacity in the targeted geographic area;
2. Serving more clients with more effective SUD Treatment Services that will help mitigate negative impacts of substance use, including but not limited to the opioid epidemic and associated overdoses;
3. Reducing or eliminating the waitlist for SUD residential treatment services.
