Dedicated Opioid Outreach specialists help identify and connect people with opioid use disorders to the treatment and other help they need for recovery. They provide outreach, navigation, connection with treatment, and follow-along recovery support services to those who are trying to overcome opiate addiction.
Priority is given to those reentering communities from criminal justice settings (or other rehabilitative settings), and individuals who are un-insured or under-insured.
Arizona Complete Health is the administrator of the STR project across Southern Arizona, working with contracted providers across the CI-C network to help connect people with evidence-based treatments to overcome OUD .
AHCCCS is the state agency overseeing the STR grant project.
