Help for Clinics Providing MAT Services in Washington State

The Opioid Response Network/STR-TA Consortium provides training and technical assistance to clinics and organizations implementing medication assisted treatment (MAT) for opioid use disorder. Their services are free, supported by a grant from the Substance Abuse and Mental Health Administration (SAMHSA). 

The goal of STR-TA is to streamline efforts to fill all gaps where needed and as defined by states - including Washington State. An STR-TA team assigned to every state and territory has a prevention, treatment (physician with two years’ experience treating opioid use disorders with medications), and recovery consultant. These consultants have been identified and vetted by the STR-TA Consortium. All consultants will provide evidence-based practices and resources as defined by the consortium. 

Step 1: Those seeking technical assistance should submit a request form.

Step 2: The request will be forwarded to the designated Technology Transfer Specialist (TTS) for each state/territory.

Step 3: Once the request form is submitted, the individual submitting the request will be contacted within one business day to initiate a more detailed process for understanding the request.
