The project was able to provide services and educational programs in hospitals, school districts, community outreach, detention center, drug courts, and behavioral health clinics in our region. SBCYOR utilized and enhanced the efforts of our expert team to create effective community collaborations to appropriately identify and enroll at risk youth with OUD within San Bernardino County, in effort to avoid overdose and possible death while providing services and education in hospitals, school districts, community outreach, detention centers (juvenile and adult), drug courts, and behavioral health clinics.
