Latino Opioid Consortium

Amistades, Inc. seeks to expand and increase access to Medically Assisted Treatment (MAT) services for opioid use disorder to address medically underserved Latino communities; ensure timely treatment engagement for those with dual-diagnosis, and support individuals with OUD re-entering the community following incarceration, through an existing consortium of health/behavioral health providers in Pinal County, Cochise County, and Santa Cruz County Arizona. Through partnerships with Pinal Hispanic Council, Community Health Associates and Mariposa Community Health Clinic, the Latino Opioid Consortium (LOC) will increase culturally responsive, accessible and comprehensive MAT services in rural and urban settings. The LOC’s main purpose is to decrease rates of illicit opioid use/misuse by clients in MAT and counseling treatment at the six month follow up.
