OUR BIG TAKEAWAYS:
- The Addiction Treatment Starts Here: Primary Care Learning Collaborative is an 18-month program designed to increase access to medication-assisted treatment (MAT) in primary care for patients with opioid use disorder (OUD).
- Applicants should be “new” to MAT. We define this as (1) having fewer than five patients regularly receiving buprenorphine or naltrexone for OUD and (2) lacking formalized policies and procedures for the provision of MAT. A program can qualify as “new” even if another site or location within the organization provides MAT.
- Grants of $45,000 will be awarded to accepted organizations. In addition to funding, Addiction Treatment Starts Here: Primary Care will offer learning sessions and webinars led by experts in the field, site visits to organizations with exemplar MAT programs, 1:1 coaching, and other technical assistance to support each organization in designing a MAT program.
- Applications are due online on Friday, January 8, 2021 at 5 pm PST. The final cohort will be announced on Monday, February 15, 2021.
