Bureau of Justice Assistance Comprehensive Opioid Abuse Program (BJA-COAP)

WestCare Tennessee demonstrates an understanding of the dynamic nature of substance abuse in the communities we serve. The Bureau of Justice Assistance Comprehensive Opioid Abuse Program (BJA-COAP) primary focus is to prevent and reduce overdose deaths associated with opioids, including illicit fentanyl, and advancing a shared understanding of patterns and characteristics of problem drug use in the counties we serve. The counties served are Jefferson and Cocke counties of Tennessee. The BJA-COAP program is designed to leverage resources and expertise of the US Department of Justice , Bureau of Justice Assistance (BJA), the US Department of Health and Human Services, the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention , and the State Justice Institute (SJI) along with other federal partners who come in contact with law enforcement and/or are involved in the criminal justice system in high risk rural communities and regions.

WestCare Tennessee will support this effort through activities such as: strategic planning , strengthening epidemiologic surveillance and public health data infrastructure to ensure accurate, complete , and timely data, increase the use of evidence-based appropriate prescribed interventions within local healthcare systems, develop and implement community-level opioid overdose prevention activities, establish or enhance public health, behavioral health, and public safety collaborations, enhance linkage to evidence-based practices for opioid addiction/opioid use disorder (OUD) treatment such as medication-assisted treatment (MAT), and expand peer recovery and recovery support services that help people initiate and remain in recovery and relapse prevention.

Drug Free Community – Prevention Alliance of Cocke County (P.A.C.C.)

  • Reduce substance use among youth and, over time, reduce substance abuse among adults by addressing the factors in a community that increase the risk of substance abuse and promoting the factors that minimize the risk of substance abuse.

HRSA

The Rural Communities Opioid Response Program (RCORP) Implementation-III is a three year initiative by the Health Resources and Services Administration (HRSA) aimed at reducing the morbidity and mortality of substance use disorder (SUD), including opioid use disorder (OUD), in high risk rural communities. This funding opportunity will advance RCORP’s overall goal by strengthening and expanding SUD/OUD prevention, treatment, and recovery services to enhance rural residents’ ability to access treatment and move towards recovery. Over the course of the three-year period of performance, WestCare Tennessee will complete detailed plans for sustaining their consortia and SUD/OUD services beyond the RCORP-Implementation period of performance.

WestCare Tennessee will implement a set of core SUD/OUD prevention, treatment, and recovery activities, as outlined in Program-Specific Instructions.

These activities incorporate evidence-based, promising, and innovative approaches proven to reduce the morbidity and mortality associated with opioid use disorder including overdose, such as naloxone distribution and other harm reduction services, and Medication-Assisted Treatment (MAT).

Given the complex and multifaceted nature of SUD/OUD, as well as the need to secure community buy-in and generate adequate patient volume to sustain services, WestCare Tennessee will develop a multi-sectoral consortia. For the purposes of RCORP-Implementation, a consortium is an organizational arrangement among four or more separately owned domestic public or private entities, including the applicant organization, with established working relationships.
