Comprehensive Opioid, Stimulant, and Substance Abuse Program (COSSAP)
The Comprehensive Opioid, Stimulant, and Substance Abuse Program (COSSAP) training and technical assistance (TTA) program, formerly known as COAP (Comprehensive Opioid Abuse Program), offers a variety of learning opportunities and assistance to support Bureau of Justice Assistance (BJA) COAP grantees and other local, tribal, and state stakeholders in building and sustaining multidisciplinary efforts to reduce the impact of opioids, stimulants, and other substances on individuals and communities.
TASC’s Center for Health and Justice (CHJ) helps grantees implement evidence-based, systemic solutions at the front end of the justice system to respond to the substance use that often contributes to contact with the justice system.
Recognizing that law enforcement and first responders are often at
the front line of the opioid epidemic and responding to frequent drug overdose
calls, a variety of multidisciplinary overdose response and early diversion
models have emerged in communities throughout the nation.
By providing online resources and in-person TTA for first
responders and their community partners, CHJ can assist communities with
implementing outreach and linkage programs for those most at risk for overdose,
with the aim of preventing future crises through rapid engagement to
community-based behavioral health services.
