"Combating the opioids crisis is a top priority for the Missouri Department of Health and Senior Services (DHSS). The department is working with sister state agencies, local health departments, hospitals, law enforcement and other partners to fight this modern plague. We know that every person saved from an overdose or connected with rehabilitation resources is a mother, father, sibling or child to someone else."
This guide is intended to help providers deliver treatment and supportive services to individuals with Opioid Use Disorder (OUD) under the State Targeted Response Opioid Crisis Grant (Opioid STR). DMH and the Opioid STR team have developed this Provider Implementation Guide to outline clear and consistent guidance with step-by-step clinical and administrative instructions on grant utilization.
This guide is divided into multiple sections, as many provider staff are involved in the
consumer experience and the billing process and have distinct roles. We encourage you to
distribute particular sections to the staff who could most benefit from the information. These
sections include the following:
- General Overview of Grant and Grant Requirements
- Important Points to Remember
- Clinical Guide for Intake and Psychosocial Supportive Services
- Clinical Guide for Medical Treatment of OUD
