Grants to West Virginia nonprofits and businesses for evidence-based support services for individuals age 16 and over with opioid addiction. Funding is intended for comprehensive and integrated recovery programs that will reduce opioid-related deaths, as well as to improve access to services for high-risk populations.
SOR aims to address the opioid crisis and prevent opioid use disorder (OUD) deaths by:
- Increasing access to medication-assisted treatment (MAT) using the three FDA-approved medications for the treatment of opioid use disorder,
- Reducing unmet treatment need, and
- Reducing opioid overdose related deaths through the provision of prevention, treatment and recovery activities for opioid use disorder (OUD) (including prescription opioids, heroin, and illicit fentanyl and fentanyl analogs).
Proposals must describe how the work will actively:
- Promote client engagement to increase time in treatment and recovery;
- Provide timely, culturally-competent, and evidence-based recovery services supportive of MAT for individuals with OUD;
- Provide supports for a life in recovery building health, home, purpose, and community, by improving access to housing, employment or educational services, medical care, mental health counseling and treatment, childcare, transportation, support groups, and other types of services and resources that allow people to move forward in recovery.
- Provide support for people in long-term OUD recovery whose health regimen includes ongoing medication needs, including periodic assessment and overdose prevention activities.
- Promote access (to include training and distribution) to Naloxone for staff and individuals served.
Target Population: (Ages 16+) with an Opioid Use Disorder, individuals with OUD representing high-risk, priority populations including people who have been incarcerated, individuals identifying as LGBTQ, military veterans, IV drug users, and pregnant/postpartum women, and individuals who may have co-occurring mental illness and/or polysubstance use.
