three-county coordinated opioid response project (3CCORP)

The 3CCORP is multi-sector collaborative effort to address the opioid epidemic in our region.  The assessment and planning phase of 3CCORP was launched in September 2016 concluding with an opioid summit on January 30, 2017.  We are now in the implementation phase and addressing the opioid epidemic is a required project in the Medicaid Transformation Project (MTP). Therefore, all nine ACHs will be developing and implementing similar plans statewide.  To the extent possible, we are working together!
