Grants of $75,000 to West Virginia nonprofit and for-profit hospitals to improve treatment for patients with substance use disorder. Funding is intended to support capacity building, strategic planning, and hiring of personnel to enable hospitals to implement specific treatment models for substance use disorder patients.
The specific purpose of this AFA is to support two hospitals in addressing substance use disorder for all patients using the Project Engage Model, which includes facility-wide integration of universal screening, medication-assisted treatment initiation, prevention of opioid withdrawal, peer recovery support specialist (PRSS) support, and coordinated care transition. Priority consideration will be given to proposals that currently employ emergency department SUD response measures, including but not limited to the initiation of medication-assisted treatment, stationing a peer recovery support specialist in the ED, SUD screening, naloxone distribution, and local licensed behavioral health and community partnerships.
The purpose of this AFA is to provide start-up funding for strategic planning toward readiness for implementation of the Project Engage model in two hospitals to provide individuals with SUD access to the continuum of care upon contact with the hospital system at any point of entry. One of the main goals of the Project Engage Model is to ensure that medical personnel working all throughout a hospital are adequately prepared to treat patients with substance use disorder.
The program envisions hospitals expanding their capacity to treat those with SUD and to better meet the needs of those patients. The Project Engage model focuses on expanding the capacity of hospitals to treat those with substance use disorder. Project Engage aims to improve coordination between multiple sectors at healthcare facilities, such as hospitals, in order to provide better treatment for those with substance use disorder.
