Coordinated Opioid Recovery (CORE)
Standard treatment programs have had limited success in creating long term recoveries for this lifelong illness. This innovative program is the first of its kind in the country, expanding a state-supported cohesive coordinated system of addiction care for individuals suffering from substance use disorder.
This comprehensive approach expands every aspect of overdose response and treats all primary and secondary impacts of substance use disorder. From care and peer navigators directly within an emergency department, to sustainable overall health care, this structure disrupts the revolving door of addiction and overdose.
The network does not solely depend on emergency response for overdoses and substance use disorder, ensuring patients are also stabilized and treated for coexisting medical and mental health conditions. Patients will need dental care, primary care, psychiatric evaluation, maternal care, and social support services. Social support services can address career training, housing, or food insecurity.
CORE initiatives in Pinellas County expands counseling and treatment availability during weekend hours for clients entering the hospital bridge program.
