California Bridge Emergency Department Medications for Opioid Use Disorder Initiative

The Public Health Institute is helping more than 100 hospitals across the U.S. build systems to deliver medications for opioid use disorder in the emergency department and refer patients to ongoing care, a strategy demonstrated to double the likelihood that patients with opioid use disorder will remain in treatment. Its California Bridge model emphasizes outreach, screening, treatment initiation, and the establishment of referral pathways.
