Substance use disorder (SUD) systems are often siloed, with little integration or communication across specialty addictions treatment, primary care and hospitals, harm reduction, policy, and advocacy organizations. This can lead to fragmented care, mutual misunderstanding, and systems that are refractory to change.

From April – June 2020, we led an SUD COVID response ECHO to support Oregon SUD leaders to adapt to a quickly the changing environment where there was widespread anxiety and lack of guidance. We convened leaders in the SUD community to share resources and best practices and to problem solve solutions to emerging concerns.

The group enabled leaders to respond to real-time needs, address existing barriers within SUD systems, and building relationships and community across statewide SUD leaders. Participants’ conviction of the value of ECHO beyond the acute COVID-19 crisis pushed us to consider how to sustain the group. This ECHO is our response to that need.

The Oregon SUD Leadership ECHO aims to continue the collaborative spirit and leadership structure of this group to meet needs of an unrelenting substance use epidemic.
