The Opioid Response Network (ORN) was established in 2018 in response to a grant award to the American Academy of Addiction Psychiatry (AAAP) from the Substance Abuse and Mental Health Services Administration (SAMHSA). Today, ORN is funded through SAMHSA’s State Opioid Response/ Tribal Opioid Response – Technical Assistance (SOR/TOR-TA) grant.

AAAP leads the network in collaboration with the Addiction Technology Transfer Center (ATTC) Network, at the University of Missouri – Kansas City, and Columbia University Division on Substance Use Disorders. The coalition represents an unprecedented alliance of interprofessional health, behavioral health, prevention, harm reduction, recovery, and justice and corrections organizations.
