Project Name: Aldea YOR
Project Description: Aldea is the essential community partner for children and families in crisis. Implementing the YOR Project will allow Aldea to increase the capacity and access to quality services for youth and young adults (ages 12-24) misusing opioids and/or stimulants, particularly those with Opioid Use and Amphetamine Use Disorders, in Solano County. Through outreach to all Solano County communities, especially rural communities with a high percentage of opioid related overdose, Aldea will engage stakeholders, including a youth advisory council, and partnering agencies to identify gaps and barriers to engagement, treatment, and retention in services.
With our partners and stakeholders, we will provide youth specific screening, access to a drop-in center and treatment programs, including medication assisted treatment, and recovery support programs. Outreach and engagement efforts will be multifaceted and will include targeting historically underserved populations including LGBQTI, Latinx, African America, and Asian America/Pacific Islander communities. The lasting impact of this project includes community education, de-stigmatization of harm reduction interventions and treatment, early identification of Opioid Use and Amphetamine Use Disorders, broad community outreach and education, and expedited clear pathways to treatment that support young people and their families.
