NOSORH is proud to announce the release of a report on the lessons learned from the Rural Opioid Overdose Reversal grants. The Federal Office of Rural Health Policy awarded grants to 18 organizations to combat the impact of opioid overdose at the community level. Awardees in the pilot project were funded to increase the availability and utilization of naloxone and to focus on the importance of referring individuals dependent on opioids to an appropriate substance abuse treatment center. Awardees freely shared lessons learned and educational resources developed. “This is a great compilation of the excellent work that can be conducted to build collaboration in rural communities,” said Teryl Eisinger, NOSORH Executive Director.
The report is available here on the NOSORH website. Stay tuned for more information on a webinar that will be held later this month to learn more about the resources and the report.
