>>> RFA: SFY 2018 Telehealth Hub Grant


As part of the implementation of Ohio’s 21st Century CURES Act initiative, the Ohio Department of Mental Health and Addiction Services (OhioMHAS) is seeking applications to provide telehealth services for patients with opioid use disorder (OUD). OhioMHAS intends to fund four (4) applicants to establish telemedicine hubs that provide medication assisted treatment (MAT) services to individuals living in rural Tier 1 and Tier 2 counties (those counties identified as having the highest overdose counts rates, and fentanyl deaths).

The grant will provide funding for a variety of operations including developing formal business contracts and providing transportation services. 

Awardees will establish telehealth hubs that link with behavioral health organizations located in rural Tier 1 and Tier 2 counties. Telehealth services must be provided to patients with OUD, and specific services must include MAT induction and maintenance.

Any FDA-approved form of MAT may be used in the treatment of patients with OUD (i.e., methadone, buprenorphine products including buprenorphine/naloxone combination formulations and buprenorphine mono-product formulations, naltrexone products including extended-release and oral formulations, or implantable buprenorphine).

Other treatment services may be provided by the telehealth provider if they are not already provided in the community, or if there is a wait list among community behavioral health organizations. Each awardee must establish at least five (5) business contracts with behavioral health providers located in rural Tier 1 and Tier 2 counties to provide telehealth services. Within three months of grant award, awardees must serve at least 30 patients per month at each contracted behavioral health organization.


Applications must be submitted electronically to by 5:30 p.m. on Aug. 24. All questions must be submitted electronically to by 5:30- p.m. on Aug. 17. Responses will be posted to the OhioMHAS Funding Opportunities page. See important links to apply below.

>>> Applications Accepted Now for Gambling Disorder Treatment Supervision Fellowship Program

Recovery Resources and OhioMHAS will again partner for the third year of the Disordered Gambling Treatment Supervision Fellowship Program (Fellowship Program). The goal of this program is to prepare clinicians to provide clinical supervision for professionals who are eligible to treat people with disordered gambling. This includes skills such as the ability to provide clinical supervision in person and via phone, to serve as a trainer on the topic of disordered gambling treatment and serve as a general resource regionally and at the state level on disordered gambling treatment. The fellowship is comprised of training, clinical consultation, professional development planning and concludes with fellows presenting a case study and professional development plan. Specific program requirements and components are outlined in the Fellowship Application. Questions? Contact Mike Buzzelli of Recovery Resources at
