Opioid Response Network

Our Partnership with the Opioid Response Network

The Addiction Research Institute is a partner in the Opioid Response Network (ORN) through its role as the South Southwest Addiction Technology Transfer Center. The Substance Abuse and Mental Health Services Administration (SAMHSA) funds the State Opioid Response – Technical Assistance grant to the American Academy of Addiction Psychiatry in collaboration with the Addiction Technology Transfer Center (ATTC), Columbia University Division on Substance Use Disorders and a large national coalition. The Opioid Response Network focuses on providing free resources and training around the prevention, treatment, and/or recovery of opioid and stimulant use. Anyone needing assistance in these areas can submit a request via the Opioid Response Network website.
