Co-Location of Services Model
The co-location of services model, also called a one-stop shop, combines medication for opioid use
disorder (MOUD) care with additional services, including treatment for opioid use disorder (OUD),
mental health conditions, and primary care needs, to offer comprehensive care within the same
setting. Depending on the needs of the patient population, programs implementing a co-location of
services model can also integrate treatment and management of other conditions, such as HIV and
Examples of Co-Location of Services Programs
Indiana's Scott County Partnership Inc. developed a
one-stop shop program to provide buprenorphine, counseling, HIV and hepatitis C treatment, and
primary care in a mental health clinic. The program was developed in response to an HIV outbreak that
was traced back to syringe sharing and was the first OUD and HIV treatment center in the rural
Buprenorphine HIV Evaluation and Support (BHIVES) model integrates buprenorphine treatment into
an HIV primary care setting. In this model, the same provider often prescribes both HIV treatment and
Bringing services together in one location can reduce barriers to care, such as transportation, for
patients with OUD in rural communities. With the co-location of services, patients that may need to
travel long distances to access services can reduce travel time and costs by receiving multiple
services within the same office visit.
Prior to integrating services, a program may need to consider how they will share information between providers.
This may include developing a shared health record system. Programs should create an eco-map
of a patient's care team, to depict the agencies and providers involved in the program and connected to the
patient. This may include primary care providers, counselors, case managers, and family supports to ensure you
have access to the necessary providers and services to treat patients with OUD.
