Addiction Treatment Starts Here: Primary Care.



The Center for Care Innovations, in partnership with the California Department of Health Care Services and Cedars-Sinai, is launching a new program titled Addiction Treatment Starts Here: Primary Care.


The program’s goal is an increase in access to medication-assisted treatment (MAT) in primary care for patients with opioid use disorder.
 

Up to 40 California health center sites will receive grants of up to $50,000 and a range of support to connect with peers and experts who are successfully implementing, scaling, and sustaining MAT in primary care settings. Program activities include capability-building trainings, in-person events, site visits to exemplar organizations, and coaching. The 18-month program begins in February 2019.
 

Learn more in an informational webinar on Tuesday, November 27, from noon to 1:00 PM (PT). Register now.


The application deadline is 5:00 PM (PT) on Friday, December 14. Download the application.
