• Eligibility Requirements

    Beyond Opioids is committed to meeting the civil legal needs of our clients to ensure successful prevention, treatment, and recovery from SUD. We strive to expand and grow our project to be responsive for those needs by diligently pursuing funding opportunities. In the interim, we strategically focus our limited resources to serve those at the highest risk of acquiring SUD, families with the least sources to address active SUD in the household, and those whose successful treatment and recovery is jeopardized because of civil legal barriers.

     

    Our limited resources means establishing a financial eligibility threshold, providing different levels of service, and identifying priority areas.

  • Who Qualifies:

    • A person in active use, treatment, or recovery.
    • Minors whose parents are in active use, treatment, or recovery.
    • People filling familial roles for minors whose parents are in active use treatment, or recovery.
    • Individuals who have or are actively harmed by a person at any stage of SUD.

  • Service Area

  • Financial and Location Eligibility

    To be eligible to receive services, clients must fall below 200% of the Federal Poverty Line. Our intake workers will assess whether or not a client falls within this range. If you are not sure, it is always better to call and find out.

     

    Under the HRSA grant, those living in rural designated counties receive priority to Beyond Opioids services. However, Beyond Opioids is committed to helping anyone, regardless of county designation. Even if you are not residing in a rural county, we still encourage our clients to call to assess their eligibility.

     

    If you or a loved one are currently residing in a treatment facility of a non-rural county but have a permanent address in a rural county, you are still eligible, just mention this to the intake worker completing your assessment.

  • What Beyond Opioids Cannot Help With:
