California Youth Opioid Response

California Youth Opioid Response (YOR California) is a partnership between the California Institute for Behavioral Health Solutions (CIBHS) and Advocates for Human Potential, Inc., (AHP) which provides funding to organizations to implement and expand MAT and opioid use disorder prevention, treatment, and recovery services to youth and their family members. YOR California has provided support to organizations throughout California, spanning the continuum of prevention, intervention, treatment, harm reduction, and recovery services for youth and young adults.

YOR California recently awarded the third round of funds, providing a total of $12 million to 43 grantees. Funding is for implementation projects, which provide treatment services to youth, and capacity building only projects, which increase access to quality services but don’t provide direct treatment. The project also includes robust technical assistance to support grantee and other stakeholder’s efforts to address the needs of youth misusing opioids.
