Initiation of a Licensed Addiction Counselor into the Broadwater Health Center Integrated Care Team

Grant Term: 12 months; 2018-2019
Grant Amount: $40,000

This project will add the treatment of substance use disorders into Broadwater’s primary care practice. Grant funding will be used to hire a licensed addiction counselor who will help implement screening, brief intervention, and referral to treatment and medication-assisted treatment for opioid use disorders. Additionally, funds will be used to allow the grantee to seek state approval as a substance use disorder provider, which will be needed for Broadwater to be reimbursed by Medicaid for their services.
