The Treatment Access & Recovery Support Team typically meets on the third Friday of the month, 8:30-10:30am
Led by the Howard Center and UVM Medical Center, this team will identify barriers and solutions and strategies to create seamless, efficient and timely access to appropriate treatment and recovery supports, as well as developing specific recommendations for policy reform and systems change. This work is closely connected with the existing Opioid Task Force that meets weekly at the Howard Center to address individual case needs, which is supported by the Jeffords Institute.
