The purpose of this program is to build the evidence base for what prevention, treatment, and recovery interventions are most effective and sustainable in rural communities. The Centers will achieve this by identifying, implementing, and evaluating SUD/OUD community-based pilot projects and then disseminating the outcomes, lessons learned, and translatability of those projects to other rural settings through written publications, conference presentations, toolkits, and other mediums, including a joint Clearinghouse. These dissemination efforts will in turn assist other rural entities in establishing, expanding, and/or strengthening the quality of SUD services in their communities.

Three Centers will be awarded under this funding opportunity:

1) RCORP-Rural Center of Excellence on SUD Prevention

2) RCORP-Rural Center of Excellence on SUD Treatment

3) RCORP-Rural Center of Excellence on SUD Recovery
