Access to prevention, treatment,
and recovery services.
Healing Allegany seeks to reduce illness 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 as well as individual county residents who volunteer their time and talent to the project.
The four main goals of Healing Allegany are:
- Provide education on opioid and addiction-related stigma to the general public and healthcare workforce, to include advocacy for harm reduction programs.
- Expand access to prevention, treatment and recovery services.
- Promote development of stable housing and other services for those in recovery.
- Provide targeted services for families affected by opioid and substance use disorders
Available resources including treatment, support, and transportation.
