Beyond Birth C2350: CL1: Beyond Birth (KORE/SOR MOUD)

Grants and Contracts Details


ABSTRACT KORE/SOR MOUD The Kentucky Opioid Response Effort (KORE) is a grant initiative to provide a comprehensive targeted response to Kentucky’s opioid crisis by expanding access to a full continuum of high quality, evidencebased opioid prevention, treatment, recovery and harm reduction services and supports in high-risk geographic regions of the state. Informed by data on populations most in need, the KORE projects will focus on four primary populations: 1) opioid overdose survivors, 2) pregnant and parenting women with OUD, 3) justice-involved individuals with OUD, and 4) children, transition-age youth, and families impacted by OUD. The purpose of the project is to expand and enhance access to FDA-approved medications for opioid use disorder (MOUD) and important wraparound services for women in need of postpartum outpatient addiction treatment via an expansion of University of Kentucky Beyond Birth (BB) and a partnership with the University of Kentucky Health Center (UKHC) Neonatal Intensive Care Unit (NICU) and Neonatal Abstinence Care Unit (NACU). NAS Program The General Fund appropriation to the Justice and Public Safety Cabinet to address the opioid epidemic in Kentucky will provide grant funding to community substance abuse treatment providers. These funds shall be used to address Neonatal Abstinence Syndrome (NAS) by developing or expanding comprehensive evidence-based residential treatment services, transitional housing, and other recovery supports to pregnant and parenting women with opiate use disorders. The Department for Behavioral Health, Developmental and Intellectual Disabilities (DBHDID) has partnered with the Kentucky Agency for Substance Abuse Policy in the distribution and monitoring of funds. UKHC’s Beyond Birth (BB) program shall offer services to mothers in treatment to develop critical parenting skills and support maternal recovery efforts as outlined in the grant application dated August 22, 2019, submitted in response to the FY 2020 Notice of Funding Opportunity to Address NAS by Expanding Treatment and Recovery Services for Pregnant and Parenting Women with Opioid Use Disorders.
