Unfortunately, the opioid crisis in the US continues to persist. According to the US Department of Health & Human Services, over 130 people die every day from opioid-related drug overdoses. The California Department of Health Care Services (DHCS) has implemented a program called the California DHCS Opioid Response (previously known as the California MAT Expansion Project) to increase access to Medication-Assisted Treatment (MAT) services, reduce unmet treatment needs, and reduce opioid overdose-related deaths in California. DHCS’ Opioid Response focuses on 3 goals: saving lives, ensuring access to treatment, and reducing the barriers to care. The program also focuses on populations with limited MAT access, including youth, people in rural areas, and American Indian & Alaska Native tribal communities.
