In addition to staff attorneys, Beyond Opioids’ is supported by a consortium of SUD providers to ensure that our clients receive the prevention, treatment, and recovery services that they need for better legal and health outcomes.
The project launched on 1 September 2020, funded by Health Resources and Services Administration (HRSA) under its “Rural Communities Opioid Response Program (RCORP)” program. RCORP is a multi-year initiative that addresses barriers to treatment for substance use disorder (SUD), including opioid use disorder (OUD).
ALL substance use disorder (SUD) service providers in Arkansas are welcome and strongly encouraged to refer their patients and clients to Beyond Opioids who need but can’t afford an attorney in civil matters.
