Purpose / Overview

Local SUD Prevention Planning

The Oswego County Division of Mental Hygiene is responsible for local planning.  With the goal of assisting to reduce the number of opioid overdoses and related deaths in Oswego County, the Division has been working with stakeholders to identify intervention(s).

The Division has prepared a concept paper of an Outreach / Reach-Out service which is a basic outline for an intervention.  

The Oswego County Division of Mental Hygiene believes that this type of service, partnered with existing provider services and county departments, can be a low cost, effective, and instrumental strategy to address this need.

To engage people in need of substance abuse treatment and services, the Division proposes a concept that offers a real time response to people where they are. The response would be tailored to the needs and preferences of the person.  

As our next step, we are soliciting your response to this Request for Information (RFI) to further expand the concept.  Please review the accompanying planning report and concept paper prior to completing the RFI.   RFI responses should be submitted online before October 15, 2018 at:          
You may contact the Division at 315-963-5361 with any questions.   Thank You
