SIROW's work on the U-MATTER (Unified Medication Assisted Treatment Targeted Engagement Response ) Project was recently highlighted in the news. U-MATTER is a partnership between Pima County, the Tucson Police Department, CODAC Health, Recovery & Wellness, Inc, Pretrial Services of Arizona Superior Court in Pima County, and SIROW. U-MATTER aims to 1) enhance and expand access to medication-assisted treatment for individuals who have opioid use disorder and 2) improve well-being and decrease opioid misuse and related risk behaviors.
