HEALing Communities Study:
Helping End Addiction Long-term in Broome County
About the Study:
In partnership with Columbia University, the Broome County Mental Health Department is participating in the HEALing (Helping End Addiction Long-term) Communities Study (HCS) to develop and implement evidence-based practices aimed at reducing opioid-related overdose deaths by 40 percent. Broome County’s HCS Work Group (HCSWG) is comprised of relevant sectors of the community including treatment providers, hospital systems, harm reduction, public health, coalitions, and people with lived opioid-use experience. HCS promotes community collaboration and data-driven decision making to change practices, decrease stigma, and increase awareness and accessibility of treatment, harm-reduction, and recovery services to reduce the number of opioid-related overdose deaths in Broome County. The RFPs published on this date are a result of the effort and expertise of the members of the HCSWG.
