State Opioid Response (SOR)

The State Opioid Response (SOR) grant is awarded through the Arizona Health Care Cost Containment System (AHCCCS) and administered by the Substance Abuse and Mental Health Services Administration (SAMSHA). The Governor’s Office of Youth, Faith and Family (GOYFF) works to address the opioid crisis by distributing funds to organizations throughout the state that support the full implementation of the Arizona Rx Drug Toolkit, designed to guide communities to take actions that lead to positive outcomes in the fight against drug misuse and abuse.

In addition, GOYFF supports the continued service enhancements and implementation of best practices related to addressing the full continuum of care related to opioid misuse, abuse, and dependency by distributing approximately $3.7 million to partnering agencies to aid in the development of state, regional, and local level collaborations. Target populations include: individuals reentering the community from correctional settings, individuals in rural and isolated areas, individuals experiencing homelessness, tribal populations, veterans, military service members, pregnant women, and individuals who have experienced trauma.

SOR funding is also used to expand Prevent Child Abuse Arizona’s Positive Parenting Program (Triple P) across Arizona. By providing trainings/certifications of new providers in Triple P, distributing Triple P Online codes to families, and supporting providers in their Triple P service delivery to parents unable to access Triple P programming, Prevent Child Abuse Arizona has acquired a versatile network of provider organizations throughout the state who work with the following sub populations: incarcerated parents at time of reentry, child welfare-involved parents/caregivers reunifying with children, and parents who have experienced domestic violence.
