NYAPRS Note: The below request comes from our friends at the Center for Social Innovation (C4) who are partnering with a number of others to provide this technical assistance as part of a team combating the opioid crisis. See below for opportunities to work with them.
As you know the US is in the midst of an opioid epidemic where more than 33,000 people died from overdoses involving opioids in 2015 and where only 1 in 4 people with an opioid use disorder received treatment. To help fight this epidemic the American Academy of Addiction Psychiatry (AAAP) has been funded to lead an interprofessional consortium of partners as the Substance Abuse and Mental Health Services Administration (SAMHSA), Opioid State Targeted Response (STR) Technical Assistance Center. The STR TA Center team includes the Center for Social Innovation who is working to recruit expert Recovery Consultants.
The Center for Social Innovation is reaching out to you today to invite you to help combat this epidemic by using your expert knowledge as paid Technical Assistance (TA) Expert Consultants (compensation and number of hours will vary).
The responsibilities would include:
- Working on localized interprofessional TA teams to provide expert consultation to providers in the delivery of services to those who have or may have opioid use disorders in a state or region close to you.
- Participate in web-based training (6 hours total)
- Participate in train-the-trainer activities (as needed)
- Possibly Lead TA teams through virtual or face-to-face sessions (depending on expertise)
