What is Healing Allegany?

Healing Allegany seeks to reduce illnesses and death in Allegany County, Maryland related to opioid and substance use disorders.

Funded through a $1 million, three-year grant from the federal Rural Communities Opioid Response Program (RCORP), Healing Allegany is driven by a community-based consortium comprised of nine member agencies: AHEC West, Allegany County Health Department, Allegany County Sheriff’s Office, Allegany County Office of Workforce Development, Allegany County Department of Social Services, Allegany College of Maryland, UPMC-Western Maryland (the county-based regional hospital), Archway Station behavioral services agency, and Pressley Ridge family services. Numerous county residents volunteer their time and talent to the project.

Healing Allegany began with a one-year RCORP Planning Grant, through which the consortium identified community needs related to opioid and addictions programs, including gaps in existing services related to prevention, treatment, and recovery. This effort involved extensive outreach through focus groups and key informant interviews of affected populations, including county residents in recovery, the homeless population, school system employees, social workers, hospital staff, the faith community, and law enforcement.

Following the year-long planning phase, the consortium successfully applied for a three-year RCORP Implementation Grant. Healing Allegany officially began the Implementation phase Sept. 1, 2020. The project includes a sustainability component that foresees the initiative continuing beyond the Aug. 30, 2023 end of RCORP funding. The project Goals and Strategic Plan are detailed below.

Goal #1

Provide stigma education to the general public and healthcare workforce, to include information on and advocacy for harm-reduction programs that reduce the morbidity and mortality associated with SUD/OUD

Goal #2

Expand access to prevention, treatment and recovery services through workforce enhancement and improved service coordination

Goal #3

Promote development of stable housing and other supportive services, including self-help and mutual support programs, for those in recovery

Goal #4

Provide targeted services for families affected by SUD/OUD, to include naloxone distribution and training, enhanced foster care services, and evidence-based mind-body skills training to prevent addiction, promote resilience and restore hope
