Opioid Use Disorder Program Development

The Center for Counseling and Consultation is a community mental health center serving individuals in four rural counties in Kansas (Barton, Pawnee, Rice, and Stafford) where access to substance use disorder treatment is limited. The project will fund a substance use disorder program director to lead efforts to expand treatment for opioid use disorder and other substance use disorders in these four counties. The project will complement the center’s efforts to achieve certification as a Certified Community Behavioral Health Center and secure sustained funding for holistic and integrated community-based care.
