Rural Communities Opioid Response Program

Rural Communities Opioid Response Program (RCORP)

This is a unique program focusing on the Opioid epidemic in the rural communities in our state, funded by the Health Resources & Services Administration. Our overall goal is to address barriers to treatment for substance use disorder (SUD), including opioid use disorder (OUD). It works toward the United States Department of Health & Human Services goal of ending the opioid epidemic. The consortium is one component that is used to approach this work.
