PCSS Implementation (PCSS-I) Launches New Initiative to Meet Your Clinical Needs

The PCSS Implementation project within PCSS provides implementation technical assistance (TA) to healthcare organizations and providers for the use and/or expansion of SUD services, including MAT with a focus on opioid use disorder (OUD). If you and your colleagues need help in integrating evidence-based practices for the treatment of substance use disorders and opioid use disorder into your clinical practices, PCSS-I is here to help. PCSS-I has clinical and implementation experts as PCSS-I Facilitators available to work with you and your team to develop strategies tailored specifically to support you and your team to meet your needs. There is no cost to participate. Clinical sites should be primary care or mental health programs, and will be asked to:

  • Identify at least one on-site “champion” (i.e., clinical or administrative point person)
  • Convene a multi-disciplinary implementation team (i.e., 3-6 participants, to include administrative and clinical staff, technicians, support staff, etc.) to participate in one monthly PCSS Implementation one-hour meetings
  • Commit to participate for at least 6-months to enhance capacity to deliver SUD services
