OORP- Opiate Overdose Recovery Program
OORP provides support services to individuals reversed from opioid overdoses and treated at hospital emergency departments. The OORP utilizes specially trained peers to engage reversed individuals, provide recovery supports, non-clinical assistance, and appropriate referrals for assessment and treatment. When an individual has been reversed from an overdose, recovery specialists are notified and deployed within one hour. OORP workers, many of whom are in recovery themselves, follow-up with these individuals for at least eight weeks. In most instances services are provided 24 hours a day by part-time OORP workers in all 21 counties.
STAR- Support Team for Addiction Recovery
This network will provide all levels of care to increase access to treatment, reduce unmet treatment need, and reduce opioid related deaths. Peer workers will provide recovery support to clients in treatment. Home-visiting support teams for addiction recovery will include a peer to provide recovery support and a case manager to help the client address his or her other essential needs.
