HEALing Communities Study - Kentucky Translation of Research to Practice for the Treatment of Opioid Addiction HEALing Communities Study NIDA UNIVERSITY OF KENTUCKY WALSH, SHARON L Lexington, KY 2019
FOA Title: HEALing Communities Study: Developing and Testing an Integrated Approach to Address the Opioid Crisis (Research Sites) (UM1 - Clinical Trial Required)
FOA Number: RFA-DA-19-016
Summary:

Although there are effective prevention and treatment programs and services to address opioid misuse, opioid use disorder (OUD), and overdose, gaps remain between those needing and those receiving prevention and treatment, in part because of a need to better understand how to make these programs and services most effective at a local level. The National Institutes of Health (NIH) and the Substance Abuse and Mental Health Services Administration (SAMHSA) launched the HEALing Communities Study to generate evidence about how tools for preventing and treating opioid misuse and OUD are most effective at the local level. This multisite implementation research study will test the impact of an integrated set of evidence-based practices across health care, behavioral health, justice, and other community-based settings. The goal of the study is to reduce opioid-related overdose deaths by 40 percent over three years. The University of Kentucky is partnering with academic institutions in three other states to study the impact of these efforts in 67 highly affected communities. The study will also look at the effectiveness of coordinated systems of care designed to increase the number of individuals receiving medication to treat OUD, increase the distribution of naloxone, and reduce high-risk opioid prescribing.
