About Us

The Missouri Opioid State Targeted Response (Opioid STR) grant at UMSL-MIMH focuses on expanding access to integrated prevention, treatment, and recovery support services for individuals with opioid use disorder (OUD) throughout the state of Missouri. The primary focus is on rigorous, multidisciplinary provider training and education on Medication Assisted Treatment (MAT) and the provision of evidence-based treatment services to uninsured individuals with OUD presenting for care within state-funded programs. The primary goals of the Opioid STR project include: 1) Increase provider-focused opioid use and overdose prevention initiatives and programs; 2) Increase access to evidence-based MAT for uninsured individuals with OUD through provider training, direct service delivery, healthcare integration, and improved transitions of care; 3) Increase the number of individuals with an OUD who receive recovery support services; and 4) Enhance sustainability through policy and practice changes as well as demonstrated clinical and cost effectiveness of grant-supported protocols.
