Rural Communities Face More than an Opioid Crisis: Reimagining Funding Assistance to Address Polysubstance Use, Associated Health Problems, and Limited Rural Service Capacity
Examines progress reports from the first 4 quarters of the Rural Communities Opioid Response Program (RCORP) to identify both substances of concern (including but not limited to opioids) and related health issues in funded communities. Data highlight which substances and related health issues are of greatest concern and that communities have the least capacity to address. Includes guidance on future funding strategies for opioid and other substance use projects.
