Eastern Oregon Human Services Consortium (EOHSC) is making an effort to map the availability of substance use disorder treatment and support services in Eastern Oregon, and assess the feasibility of a collaborative regional approach to enhance and expand services that are low barrier and harm-reduction focused. To that end, we encourage you to participate in a survey about your organization’s available services and supports. EOHSC is seeking responses from current service and support providers operating within Baker, Gilliam, Grant, Harney, Lake, Malheur, Morrow, Sherman, Umatilla, Union, Wallowa, Wasco, and Wheeler Counties. This mapping effort is intended to identify formal treatment providers, as well as community-based services and supports.
Also, in this survey, EOHSC would like to know your organization’s interest in participating in a collaborative application to the Oregon Health Authority for the development of a multi-county Eastern Oregon Behavioral Health Resource Network (BHRN). BHRNs are responsible for providing a minimum set of services to include SUD screenings, assessments, intervention planning, peer counseling, mobile outreach, low barrier substance use disorder treatment, transitional and supportive housing, and harm reduction services. This scope of services will be a component of an OHA Request for Proposal forecast to be released in October by OHA. You may access the survey at this link: https://lnkd.in/gfrXsv5i. You may share this link with your valued partners in the community as well.
Your responses are being collected by Cornerstone Whole Healthcare Organization (C-WHO**) on behalf of the Eastern Oregon Human Services Consortium (EOHSC*). For challenges with completing this survey or questions about regional collaboration, please contact Megan Lee Price-Gomeza at firstname.lastname@example.org or 208-722-4051.
Thank you for your valuable assistance and insight,
Megan Lee Price-Gomeza, MSWChief Officer Network Development and Expansion Division
