Southeast Rural Opioid Technical Assistance Regional Center (ROTA-RC)
AT THE FLORIDA STATE UNIVERSITY CENTER FOR THE STUDY AND PROMOTION OF COMMUNITIES, FAMILIES, AND CHILDREN
Working to Improve the Resiliency of Rural Communities
Creating Awareness of Opioid and Stimulant Use
Collaborating with Rural Libraries and Communities
If you or someone you know is struggling with opioid use in the U.S., the Department of Health and Human Services operates a helpline: 800-662-4357, and has a database of treatment facilities and resources at: hhs.gov/opioids
ROTA-RC seeks to develop and disseminate training and technical assistance to address opioid and stimulant use affecting rural communities in the eight states in Region 4. ROTA-RC will expand awareness of opioid and stimulate use, harm reduction, and options for treatment to improve the resiliency of the targeted 168 rural communities.
To achieve the goals of the project, the Consortium will work in the rural counties to increase awareness and understanding on the factors that engender opioid and stimulant misuse, and work with local governments to increase prevention and treatment services by deploying evidence-based programs.
