RURAL COMMUNITY OPIOID RESPONSE PROGRAMS
The Rural Communities Opioid Response Program (RCORP) is a multi-year initiative that addresses barriers to treatment for substance use disorder (SUD), including opioid use disorder (OUD). It works toward the HHS goal of ending the opioid epidemic. RCORP is supported through HRSA’s Federal Office of Rural Health Policy.
The core Substance Use Disorder/Opioid Use Disorder prevention, treatment and recovery activities for this grant will be addressed through a variety of approaches, such as Quick Response Teams, Chronic Pain Self-Management programs, Prescription Drug Monitoring, Opioid Response Community Intervention Peer Recovery Program, WV Project ECHO, State Opioid Response Medication Assisted Treatment Expansion Initiative, Workforce Development and Recruitment, Stigma Reduction Training, Payer Collaboration, Law Enforcement Assisted Diversion, Accountable Health Communities, and Enhanced Discharge Coordination.

MOV RCORP IMPLEMENTATION GRANT FOR YOUTH (MOVRCORP-YOUTH)
