Meriden Opioid Referral for Recovery at Rushford

Former Rushford client talks about his experiences in the MORR program and how it saved his life. MORR – funded by a four-year, $2-million federal grant from the Department of Health and Human Services Substance Abuse and Mental Health Services Administration (SAMSHA) –provides first responders with Narcan™ to reverse the effects of opioid overdose. First responders are then empowered to connect appropriate people with the Rushford MORR Team for follow-up assessment, clinical treatment and case management services that are so critical in the days after an overdose.
