County Touchpoints in Access to MAT for Justice-Involved Populations
Through the new State Opioid Response2 grant funded by the Substance Abuse and Mental Health Services Administration, the County Touchpoints Project is launching two new Learning Collaboratives that will support teams from California counties to develop effective, patient-centered and sustainable systems of care for persons with opioids and/or stimulant use disorders who are involved in the justice system.
Both Learning Collaboratives will provide a coach to each team, training on opioid and stimulant use disorders and their treatment, consultation and technical assistance in identifying local gaps and designing interventions, topic-specific webinars and podcasts, an on-line resource library, and access to state and national experts.
Applications for both Learning Collaboratives are due Friday, December 11, 2020 at 5:00 p.m. Participation awards will be announced by December 31 and teams will begin to convene with assigned coaches in January 2021.
Training content has been professionally videotaped and edited for use by individual organizations in delivering internal ongoing training on opioid addiction to its clients. Content is divided into nine stand-alone modules that can be customized to the training group.
Modules will be loaded onto this website as they are completed, between January and March 2020. A comprehensive training manual is also provided. All content is provided, and the internal training team need not be subject matter experts, just respected facilitators. Continuing education credits are made available where possible.
