Evaluation of the North Dakota State Opioid Response Grant

The North Dakota State Opioid Response Grant (SORG) was initiated in July 2017 by the Substance Abuse and Mental Health Services Administration and is administered by the North Dakota Department of Human Services (DHS). The project's goal is to reduce opioid related deaths through increasing access to treatment and recovery services, awareness and prevention, and reducing stigma surrounding opioid use disorder.

The Center for Rural Health is conducting evaluation of the North Dakota SORG through:

  • Collaboration with DHS on collecting and reporting data.
  • Collaboration with DHS, community grantees, and other vendors to collect and analyze treatment and recovery service feedback.
  • Development and implementation of data collection plan for tracking objectives.
  • Monitoring and tracking of performance measures specific to grant activities.
  • Review of performance measures, assessment of progress, and sharing recommendations to improve management of grant projects.
  • Collaboration with the North Dakota State Epidemiological Outcomes Workgroup.
