Description of original award (Fiscal Year 2020, $600,000)

The Comprehensive Opioid, Stimulant, and Substance Abuse Program (COSSAP) was developed as part of the Comprehensive Addiction and Recovery Act (CARA) legislation. COSSAP’s purpose is to provide financial and technical assistance to states, units of local government, and Indian tribal governments to develop, implement, or expand comprehensive efforts to identify, respond to, treat, and support those impacted by illicit opioids, stimulants, and other drugs of abuse.

The objective of Category 1 is to encourage and support the development of comprehensive, locally driven responses to opioids, stimulants, and other substances that expand access to supervision, treatment, and recovery support services across the criminal justice system; support law enforcement and other first responder diversion programs for nonviolent drug offenders; promote education and prevention activities; and address the needs of children impacted by substance abuse.

Clinton’s Opioid and Stimulant Partnership will address stimulant use and provide a broader reach of services to those in need to provide viable resources within the community through the use of an expanded multidisciplinary team that focuses efforts toward community systems working in collaborative efforts to identify, educate, treat, and prevent further instances of substance use addiction, and fatalities within our community. A Drug Abuse Response Team will follow up with overdose victims while connecting them with interventions or treatment options. The program will also update opioid community assessment, expand and enhance a MAT program, as well as partner with community agencies for recovery support services that include peer support/case management and healthcare treatment. This project serves Clinton, Iowa, and its 25,637 residents. The project includes partnerships the City of Clinton Administration, Clinton Police Department, Clinton Fire Department, MercyOne Clinton Medical Center, Clinton Substance Abuse Council, Area Substance Abuse Council, Life Connections, and Bridgeview Mental Health Center.
