State Opioid Response (SOR)

Expanding Treatment, Accessing Support, and Preventing Death & Substance Use Disorder (SUD)


 
Overview: The State Opioid Response (SOR) Grant supports the West Virginia's response to the opioid epidemic.  The grant award, from the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services, Substance Abuse and Mental Health Services Administration (SAMHSA), is administered by the West Virginia Department of Health and Human Resources (DHHR), Bureau for Behavioral Health (BBH) SOR Team.
 
Expanding Treatment: SOR grantees across WV are funded to expand the availability of treatment with medication and additional evidence-based services for individuals with substance use disorder (SUD), including individuals with opioid use disorder and stimulant use disorder.  SOR grant funding help to identify and engage individuals with SUD with treatment and provides supports to help individuals stay in long-term recovery.
 
Addressing Barriers: BBH recognizes barriers to treatment, successful recovery, and evidence-based prevention to the general population, including individuals in SUD recovery. BBH encourages the involvement of families in treatment and recovery and assists the family of an individual with an SUD or co-occurring mental health disorder. SOR initiatives addressing barriers include:
