Project Description: PHC is the Medi-Cal managed care plan for 14 northern California counties. The PHC YOR grant focused on three specific areas to address youth OUD. The first goal was to increase SUD programs’ capacity to serve youth in communities served by PHC and enhance their use of evidence-based curriculum and/or promising practices. The second goal iwas to increase the capacity of the PHC network of medical providers to effectively address youth OUD using MAT and effective referral to community resources. Informational publications and webinars were the primary mechanism for achieving this goal. The third goal was to increase youth engagement in four of the counties served by PHC through media and outreach activities aimed at youth who are at risk for an OUD. The use of technology and social media is a primary conduit for disseminating the information.
