Our society is facing an opioid crisis.

But together we can defeat it.

UR Medicine Recovery Center of Excellence works to reduce morbidity, mortality, and other harmful effects of substance use disorder in rural communities, with special attention to synthetic opioids.


Behavioral Health Care Managers in Rural Primary Care Practices with Q&A

To help rural primary care practices provide more comprehensive care to patients they serve, we highlight the role of the Behavioral Health Care Manager (BHCM) on this resource page. We have drawn upon best practices and learnings from the Collaborative Care Model of behavioral health integration and adapted the BHCM role to make it a practical approach for providers in rural communities.

Summit Equips Participants to Take Action on Health Inequity and Stigma Related to Substance Use Disorder in Rural Communities

A hybrid in-person and virtual event, the summit convened a diverse group of people with deep knowledge of the issues and dedication to finding solutions to discuss how stigma and health inequity increase barriers around substance use disorder (SUD). 

Resources for an Evolving Crisis: Preventing Overdose from Combined Substances

Resources to help health and human services providers, people with SUD and their families and friends, local leaders, and others respond to risks related to polysubstance use.





Program Assistance Center

We are working with specific counties in the Appalachian regions of Kentucky, New York, Ohio, and West Virginia as they apply evidence-based practices to fight the opioid crisis, especially related to synthetic opioids.

We also support communities across the U.S. as they find, adapt, and implement programs.

We look forward to connecting with you!
