The Purpose of the Nevada Opioid STR Initiative is to address the tremendous opioid crisis by expanding access to Medication Assisted Treatment (MAT), reducing unmet treatment needs, and reducing opioid overdose-related deaths through the provision of prevention, treatment and recovery services for Opioid Use Disorders (OUDs) in Nevada

The Nevada STR Project Consists Of The Following:

  1. The Integrated Opioid Treatment and Recovery Centers
  2. Prevention & Treatment Activities

The Nevada STR complements other collaborative efforts Nevada has implemented to expand MAT access and reduce opioid related deaths in Nevada. Detailed information about the Nevada STR Project is available in the State Needs Assessment Report and the State STR Strategic Plan.
