Description of original award (Fiscal Year 2020, $1,195,323)

The Comprehensive Opioid, Stimulant, and Substance Abuse Program (COSSAP) was developed as part of the Comprehensive Addiction and Recovery Act (CARA) legislation. COSSAPs 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. Alameda Countys Residential Multi-Service Opportunity Center will expand access to responsive community alternatives to incarceration, as well as the countys capacity to provide evidence-based mental health and substance use treatment services, built through a collaborative system of care that reduce the impact of opioids, stimulants, and other substances on individuals and communities, including a reduction in the number of overdose fatalities. This project serves Alameda County, a large, urban county with a population of 1.67 million. The project includes partnerships between ACPD and a qualified contracted service provider. CA/NCF
