Helping patients by helping providers

UVM CORA’s mission is to expand addiction-treatment capacity in HRSA-designated rural counties by providing consultation, resources, training, and evidence-based technical assistance to healthcare providers and other staff

About Our Cores

UVM CORA’s services are divided into “cores.” The cores provide a broad menu of science-based solutions to help you treat patients with opioid use disorder (OUD), other substance use disorders (SUDs), and co-occurring issues. Our patient-focused approaches are sensitive to the demographics and needs of rural populations, which have been disproportionately impacted by SUDs.

To date, UVM CORA has supported over 32,000 rural health care providers across all 50 states. See the details!
