Check out Information and Tools in the Comprehensive Opioid Abuse Program Resource Center
The Bureau of Justice Assistance (BJA) recently launched the Comprehensive Opioid Abuse Program (COAP) Resource Center, an online clearinghouse of information, training, and resources to support jurisdictions in addressing the nationwide opioid crisis. The COAP Resource Center furthers COAP’s goal to support innovative, systemwide approaches designed to reduce opioid abuse and overdose fatalities, promote substance abuse treatment and recovery, and support the implementation and enhancement of prescription drug monitoring programs (PDMP).
The COAP Resource Center’s materials will be valuable to a variety of state, local, and tribal users, including BJA COAP grantees, policymakers, partner agencies and associations, peer recovery coaches, and families affected by the opioid epidemic. The site includes:
- Educational materials;
- Descriptions of effective programs;
- Information about and access to services from the PDMP Training and Technical Assistance Center (TTAC);
- Best practices from BJA COAP grantees;
- Funding announcements; and
- Training and technical assistance opportunities.
Several organizations working in partnership with BJA comprise the COAP team, including the Institute for Intergovernmental Research, Altarum Institute, Advocates for Human Potential, Inc., and PDMP TTAC. The COAP team welcomes input from practitioners in the field on resources, materials, and best practices for inclusion in the COAP Resource Center, to be submitted via firstname.lastname@example.org.
