STR-TA Consortium Accepting TA Requests

The State Targeted Response Technical Assistance (STR-TA) Consortium has launched the STR-TA website and technical assistance (TA) process for submitting requests for education, training and support in the prevention, identification, treatment and recovery of opioid use disorders across the country.  


On Feb. 1, 2018, SAMHSA awarded the American Academy of Addiction Psychiatry (AAAP) and a coalition of 22 national healthcare organizations (many are also PCSS partners) a two-year grant to provide assistance to the 50 U.S. States and 7 territories to help target the opioid crisis. After a quick ramp-up, the consortium is now ready to accept requests for technical assistance at More than 40 TA requests were made in the first 24 hours of launch, an indication of the great need.


The STR-TA Consortium is focusing on making use of evidence-based resources that have already been created and reviewed to avoid recreating the wheel or wasting resources, including those from PCSS. 


The goal of STR-TA is to be responsive to meet community‚Äôs needs by providing training and TA on evidence-based practices in the prevention, treatment, and recovery of opioid use disorders through local experts. This effort has been designed as a tailored, locally driven approach to TA delivery. 

We urge you to share this flyer with your colleagues and community. The STR-TA Consortium and a team of TA consultants stand ready to assist STR grantees and others across the prevention, treatment, and recovery as it relates to opioid use disorders
