Goal:  To help patients access evidence-based treatment for substance use disorders with a focus on low-threshold access to medicated assisted treatment and harm reduction by fostering a paradigm shift where the stigma of opioid use disorder is reduced and medical professionals within the hospital setting are at the front line of medicated assisted treatment (MAT).


What we Do:

  • Identify patients most appropriate for treatment by a brief initial assessment. 

  • Introduce appropriate patients to MAT programs and services. 

  • Following initiation of treatment, the team facilitates appointments at one of the below outpatient MAT clinics and serve as a resource, coach and advocate for such patients. 

  • Works to reduce patient barriers by assisting with access to other services, such as mental health services, primary care, social services, and placement in residential treatment facilities if appropriate.

MISSION

Our mission is to advance initiatives against the drug epidemic, seek policy changes, develop programs and projects—or support those created by other credible organizations—that prevent substance use disorder, address the intersection between mental health and drug abuse, and save lives from overdose.
