RCORP - Rural Center of Excellence on SUD Prevention

Partnering with rural communities to increase supports and remove barriers

We are working to prevent and reduce the impact of substance use and substance use disorder (SUD) in rural areas nationwide by building and sharing  an array of evidenced-based practices that meet the needs of rural communities.

Rural SUD Info Center


Reducing Stigma Related to SUD in Rural Care Settings

This campaign aims to promote a stigma-free care environment while connecting individuals and families with treatment resources. It includes posters featuring people in recovery and emergency department providers who care for patients with substance use disorder. QR codes on the posters link to short videos with these individuals' stories.

Treatment of Opioid Use Disorder in Primary Care

We have developed comprehensive training on the treatment of opioid use disorder (OUD) in primary care to prepare providers and staff to deliver evidence-based care to patients. The comprehensive training offers CME credits which can be found on the learn page. 

988 Suicide & Crisis Lifeline: Increasing Awareness to Save Lives

The 988 Suicide & Crisis Lifeline, launched in July, provides a fast way for people experiencing a suicidal, mental health, or substance use disorder (SUD) crisis to urgently get help 24 hours a day, 7 days a week.
