Project Name: Fresno New Connections Community Response Project (FNCCR Project)
Partner Agencies (Subcontractors): LAGS Medical Centers, Lock it Up Project (California Health Collaborative), The Wildfire Effect
Project Description: The primary goal of the FNCCR Project was to increase access to OUD treatment, coordinated and integrated care, recovery support service (RSS), and prevention activities to reduce the prevalence of OUDs and overdose deaths. The project included developing and supporting state, regional, and local level collaborations in Sanger, Reedley, Clovis, Lemoore, Visalia and Dinuba, focusing on service enhancements for best practices to comprehensively address the full continuum of care related to opioid misuse, abuse, and dependency.
Goal 1: Educate and empower youth, young adults, their families, schools, faith-based organizations, community members, and parent engagement organizations to identify opioid abuse and disorders to increase their ability to live drug-free lifestyles, reducing symptoms or needs, and to build resilience through recovery-based support.
Goal 2: Develop and maintain a services coordination and continuum of care that is inclusive of culturally responsive and reflective prevention, behavioral health, SUD, and MAT accessible to youth to enhance their quality of life.
Goal 3: Provide holistic and person-centered treatment that meets individuals’ strengths, needs, abilities, and preferences.
