Webinar replay: how state leaders can leverage State Opioid Response funds for system transformation

This webinar was held on March 24, 2022. 

Since 2018, the federal government has granted more than $5 billion in State Opioid Response (SOR) funds aimed at supporting evidence-based prevention, treatment, and recovery of opioid use disorder (OUD).  The most successful state initiatives have focused on driving healthcare delivery system changes designed to increase timely, consistent, high-quality access to treatment and support services, including the use of medication assisted treatment (MAT). During this webinar, speakers showcased best-in-class efforts by states like California, Delaware, and Illinois to leverage SOR funding and achieve measurable, system-wide improvement in OUD treatment and outcomes.

Learning Objectives

  • Understand why a focused approach to the use of SOR funding is needed to drive delivery system transformation and measurable improvement in OUD treatment outcomes
  • Learn how California and Illinois are utilizing a “learning collaborative model” to increase the use of MAT among incarcerated individuals
  • Understand Delaware’s statewide approach to SOR and how building a synergistic and informed provider network is a central strategy
  • Learn how to replicate successful SOR models, with the ultimate goals of increasing access to timely, consistent care
