Rural Communities Opioid Response Program

(RCORP)

The Adirondack Health Institute will serve the Adirondack North Country Region of New York State (NYS) and the RCORP Implementation III Grant will:

Implement a regional approach to support a positive shift in community norms;

Develop systems that support early screening, identification, and treatment;

Increase collaboration and understanding of available resources;

Implement community and school-based prevention models and education;

Convene task forces and workgroups to achieve a shared vision of a regionalized approach to supporting sustained recovery, increased treatment and understanding of harm reduction; and

Initiate training strategies to increase the SUD/OUD workforce.

RCORP Coverage
Rural opioid users are more likely to have socioeconomic vulnerabilities including poor health status and lack of health insurance. These barriers among others limit access to treatment.

The Consortium will leverage, build on and expand relationships created during the RCORP-Planning project and will be premised on the tools and resources available as part of a community impact model to ensure coordination, communication support and empowerment of local communities to address opioid use and reduce overdose deaths across the full continuum of care.

The RCORP Implementation Grant will serve Clinton, Essex, Franklin, Fulton, St. Lawrence, and rural areas of Warren and Washington Counties.
