Tribal Opioid Response Grants
Tribal Opioid Response Grants (Short Title: TOR) provide funding to address the opioid crisis in tribal communities by increasing access to culturally appropriate and evidence-based treatment, including medication-assisted treatment. Funds may also be used to address stimulant misuse and use disorders, including cocaine and methamphetamine. The overall goal of the program is to reduce unmet treatment needs and opioid overdose-related deaths through the provision of prevention, treatment, and/or recovery activities for opioid use disorder (OUD), and if desired stimulant misuse and use disorders.
Required activities include:
- Complete a comprehensive strategic plan, based on the most current epidemiological data for the tribe, to address the gaps in prevention, treatment, and recovery identified by the tribe
- Implement workforce development activities to ensure that individuals working in tribal communities are well versed in strategies to prevent and treat opioid misuse
- Develop effective prevention strategies which include elder education, outreach and engagement of youth, strategic messaging, and community prevention activities
- Develop strategies to purchase and disseminate naloxone and provide training on its use to first responders and other tribal members
- Implement service delivery models that enable the full spectrum of treatment and recovery support services that facilitate positive treatment outcomes and long-term recovery
- Implement community recovery support services
- Provide treatment transition and coverage for patients reentering communities from criminal justice settings or other rehabilitative settings
