The National Health Service Corps (NHSC) recently received $105 million for future NHSC Loan Repayment Program awards that expand and improve access to quality opioid and substance use disorder treatment in rural and underserved areas. Outpatient substance use disorder (SUD) treatment facilities are also now eligible to apply if you provide any of these services:
General Substance Use Disorder (SUD) Treatment
Medication Assisted Treatment (MAT)
Opioid Treatment Program (OTP)
Applications are being accepted until August 14, 2018. Interested sites are encouraged to read the 2018 NHSC Site Reference Guide and review the new SUD New Site Documentation for all requirements.
