The North Colorado Health Alliance’s Colorado Opioid Synergy Larimer and Weld project (CO-SLAW) continues its mission to expand and enhance access to medication-assisted treatment (MAT) services for people with opioid use disorders (OUD) in Larimer and Weld Counties.
With an emphasis on substance use treatment, we partner with a wide variety of organizations nationwide to evaluate client- and organizational-level behavioral health outcomes, implement outcome measurement systems and support implementation fidelity. We also assist with evaluation of behavioral health workforce development programs.
