Upper Cumberland Human Resources Agency (UCHRA) focused its RROE project in 14 counties in Tennessee, encompassing more than 5,093 square miles, 8 of which have no medication-assisted treatment providers. UCHRA established a functional, flexible hub-and-spoke network (the Hub). The Hub established a network of resources for SUD treatment and recovery support services and served as a central point for referrals, intake, and assessment of needs for potential clients. Peer recovery coordinators were assigned to each client and stayed with the client for a 2-year time period, assisting them in many steps of their recovery pathway. Over the course of the grant period, the Hub and its recovery coordinators served 655 households (1,040 individuals) with 7,250 units of services. Services included housing referrals, access to public transportation, education and job readiness skills, recovery-friendly workplace referrals, court liaison, and mental health referrals.
