Network Approach to Addressing Use Disorders
The Office of Addiction Services and Supports (OASAS), through its fiscal agent, the Research Foundation for Mental Hygiene, Inc. (RFMH), is a recipient of the 2020 State Opioid Response Grant (SOR) from the Substance Abuse and Mental Health Services Administration (SAMHSA). The SOR grant aims to address the opioid crisis 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, reducing opioid overdose-related deaths, and providing a comprehensive continuum of treatment, prevention, and recovery services to reduce the prevalence, incidence, and consequences associated with opioid use disorder (OUD) and stimulant use disorder.
This Request for Application supports the development and reinforcement of network approaches to care that include prevention, treatment, and recovery services that align with one or more of the OASAS overarching goals for the continuum of care. Each self-selected region must identify gaps in addressing opioid and stimulant use disorder in their communities based on a need assessment. Services proposed in each application must address an identified need in the region, explain how the services aligns with an OASAS overarching goal for the continuum of care, and demonstrate how existing programs and services compliment or enhance the regional approach to care.
An application will be submitted by an OASAS-certified or funded provider as the lead representative for the Network of prevention, treatment, recovery providers serving the identified region or NYC borough. The eligible applicant is the Network of prevention, treatment and recovery providers represented in the application but submitted by one member on behalf of the Network.
