Opioid Response Network

Providing education and training at a local level for evidence-based practices in the prevention, treatment and recovery of opioid use disorders, the State Targeted Response Technical Assistance Consortium (STR-TA), funded by SAMHSA, is a response from a large coalition of national professional organizations. The Opioid Response Network, ORN, provides local training and education free of charge for specific needs at a community level.

Their goal is to respond quickly to requests for education and training resources to address the opioid crisis. The Opioid Resource Network identifies individuals with training and experience in your community to help you in addressing prevention, treatment and recovery needs and facilitate access to evidence-based resources. Each state/territory has a designated team led by a dedicated regional Technology Transfer Specialist (TTS), who has qualifications in the implementation of evidence-based practices. Each TTS will work with you to meet your needs.
