    Opioid Solutions: Technical Assistance

    What is the Opioid Response Network?

    NACo is collaborating with the Substance Abuse and Mental Health Services Administration-funded Opioid Response Network (ORN). ORN offers no-cost, evidence-based training and education to meet local needs in addressing the opioid crisis.

    The ORN is structured like a temporary agency to enhance local initiatives through no-cost education and training. ORN supports evidence-based practices across the prevention, treatment and recovery of all substance use disorders. Every state and territory has local ORN consultants to help build on existing efforts, refine and fill gaps.

    How can the Opioid Response Network help?

    ORN works with counties, states, health professionals, communities, organizations, the justice system and anybody that asks for help. ORN can help counties develop implementation plans alongside suggested opioid remediation strategies. For example, ORN can:

    • Provide evidence-based practices and guidance on Naloxone distribution and market saturation. This can be as simple as a Zoom Q&A discussion or an in-house, all-staff training.
    • Deliver an on-demand presentation on the science of addiction and the effectiveness of medications for opioid use disorder.
    • Consult on evidence-based practices for classrooms and afterschool programs for substance use prevention programming.
    • Provide mentorship on recovery housing and recovery support services that aligns with local regulatory considerations.
    • Conduct training for justice/corrections/law enforcement on evidence-based practices for the prevention, treatment and recovery of substance use disorders.

    How does it work?

    ORN responds promptly to requests for education and training. The quick-to-fill form in the link below is a bridge to your local ORN representative. County representatives can use the form as a jumping off point. Within one business day, ORN staff will be in touch to coordinate a call to learn more about what is needed and discuss how ORN can help. Questions? Email orn@aaap.org.
