Introduction

Established in (year) in order to X,Y,Z

ORN was created through a Substance Abuse and Mental Health Administration (SAMHSA) grant awarded to the American Academy of Addiction Psychiatry (AAAP) in collaboration with the Addiction Technology Transfer Center Network, at the University of Missouri – Kansas City, Columbia University Division on Substance Use Disorders and a large coalition of over 40 national professional organizations. ORN provides training and technical assistance (TA) via local experts across the country, focusing on applying evidence-based practices in prevention, treatment and recovery to meet locally identified needs. TA activities are designed to enhance efforts already underway throughout the United States and territories.

Each TA team assigned to every state and territory has a prevention, treatment (physician with two years’ experience treating opioid use disorders with medications), and recovery consultant. These consultants have been identified and vetted by ORN. All consultants provide evidence-based practices and resources as defined by the consortium. The goal of ORN is to streamline efforts to fill all gaps where needed and as defined by states.

how we got started

This program will divert individuals with an opioid or other substance use disorder who have been arrested away from jail and into treatment and recovery support services. An estimated 70 to 100 people arrested every year could qualify to participate in this program, which was recently awarded the funding needed to get it off the ground.

U.S. Senators Jack Reed and Sheldon Whitehouse and Congressman David Cicilline have announced a three-year $819,109 U.S. Department of Justice’s Bureau of Justice Assistance grant for the Woonsocket Police Department (WPD). Working with the non-profit Community Care Alliance, this will fund the Law Enforcement Assisted Deflection, Engagement, and Retention (LEADER) in Treatment program. ORN, a Substance Abuse and Mental Health Services Administration funded initiative, will continue providing WPD with education and training support as needed.
