Jobs & Hope West Virginia
Jobs & Hope West Virginia is the state’s comprehensive response to the substance use disorder crisis. Established by Governor Jim Justice and the West Virginia Legislature, this program offers support through a statewide collaboration of agencies that provide West Virginians in recovery the opportunity to obtain career training and to ultimately secure meaningful employment.

West Virginia has been chosen as one of five states to partner with Shatterproof, a national nonprofit organization dedicated to ending the devastation of addiction, on the development and implementation of a rating system for addiction treatment programs.

Pilot Programs
In February 2019, Governor Jim Justice announced a partnership between the Office of Drug Control Policy and West Virginia University on a pilot project in Berkeley and Jefferson counties. This project will work with community partners to strengthen and expand prevention and recovery resources and implement activities across the continuum of prevention, early intervention, treatment, overdose reversal, family support and recovery. This is the second pilot project spearheaded by Gov. Justice. The first pilot project, announced in February 2018, is based in Wyoming County and is a partnership between the ODCP and Marshall University.

Collegiate Recovery Programs
Collegiate Recovery Programs are college or university-provided, supportive environments within the campus culture that reinforce the decision to engage in a lifestyle of recovery from substance use.

Quick Response Teams
Quick Response Teams are composed of emergency response personnel, law enforcement officers and a substance use treatment or recovery provider who contact individuals within 24-72 hours of their overdose to offer and assist those individuals with recovery support including referrals to treatment options.

Law Enforcement Assisted Diversion (LEAD) 
LEAD services allow public safety officials to work with behavioral health providers by diverting low-level drug offenders to treatment and support services, rather than jail and prosecution. LEAD case managers work with participants to connect them to intensive interventions such as assertive community treatment, residential SUD services, comprehensive case management, medication assisted treatment, and other support services.
