Substance Use

The Wolf Administration today announced creation of the Interagency Substance Use Response Team (ISURT), a new tool for collaboration across state government to combat the disease of addiction. ISURT replaces the Opioid Command Center (OCC), which was originally created under the governor’s opioid disaster declaration. In replacing the current OCC structure, this newly-established group will shift its focus from solely opioids to all SUDs due to the increase in polysubstance use, stimulant use, and additional SUDs emerging in Pennsylvania.

Pulling from the fields of research, advocacy, policy, and practice, the National Council is launching a new interest group for members to explore the latest innovation and guidance from across the field and throughout the full continuum of substance use prevention, treatment, and recovery.

For more information on the Substance Use Interest Group and other interest groups, visit National Council’s website. As a reminder, membership in RCPA includes National Council membership.
