OPIOID USE REDUCTION AND RECOVERY ALLIANCE
The Opioid Use Reduction & Recovery (OURR) Alliance is a program focusing on aligning workforce development efforts with health and social services in response to the opioid crisis.
Funded by the National Health Emergency Grant to Address the Opioid Crisis, this project is expected to run through June of 2020. Most program areas related to this project are currently in development and are expected to be in place by January of 2019. Demonstration Grant funding will build scalable, replicable models that directly address the economic and workforce impacts associated with opioid misuse through new interventions and strategies.
PacMtn’s initiative is locally-based, close to individuals, and will be carried out primarily by trusted community-based organizations. PacMtn will provide workforce services in collaboration with and embedded in the community agencies that serve high-risk opioid affected populations.
Information on this page will be updated as more details for program areas, partnering opportunities, and how to find program services are developed.
