Description of original award (Fiscal Year 2023, $1,600,000)

Jefferson County, Alabama, is applying under Category 1: Locally Driven
Responses to the Opioid Epidemic and Subcategory 1A - a service area with a population of over
500,000. The proposed initiative will allow Jefferson County to expand evidence-based
substance use treatment and peer recovery support services to a pretrial population at high risk
for overdose. These services are essential to supporting treatment engagement. The proposed
project addresses COSSUP’s allowable use of implementing evidence-based substance use
disorder treatment related to opioids, stimulants, and other drugs and recovery support services
for a pre-trial population leaving jail.
