California Youth Opioid Response (YOR California) is a partnership between the California Institute for Behavioral Health Solutions (CIBHS) and Advocates for Human Potential, Inc., (AHP) which provides funding to organizations to implement and expand medication assisted treatment (MAT) and opioid use disorder (OUD) prevention, treatment, and recovery services to youth and their family members. YOR California has provided a total of $11 million to organizations throughout California, spanning the continuum of prevention, intervention, treatment and recovery services for youth.
YOR is providing additional funds to new grantees for implementation projects, which provide treatment services to youth, and capacity building projects, which increase access to quality services but don’t provide direct treatment. The project also includes peer-to-peer learning through learning collaboratives, and technical assistance to support grantee efforts.
