Module 3: Program Clearinghouse

The HRSA Federal Office of Rural Health Policy has funded several programs in rural areas to implement and expand medication for opioid use disorder (MOUD). The Rural Communities Opioid Response Program (RCORP) focuses on planning, implementation, and expansion of programs to treat substance use disorders, including opioid use disorder (OUD), in rural areas.

Examples of current RCORP grantees and other organizations that are implementing rural programs providing medication-assisted treatment (MAT) and medication for opioid use disorder (MOUD) are provided below. Evidence-based and promising models for implementing an MOUD program are available in Module 2.
