National Rural Health Day
Since 2010, The National Organization of State Offices of Rural Health, the 50 State Offices of Rural Health, and rural health stakeholders from across the country have set aside the third Thursday of November to celebrate National Rural Health Day (NRHD). Thus, promoting the “Power of Rural,” brings much needed attention to the ongoing efforts to communicate, collaborate, educate, and innovate to improve the health of an estimated 57 million rural Americans. Over the years, NRHD has transformed from a day-long event to a sustainable movement (PowerofRural.org).

Stigma is defined as a mark of shame or discredit. Through the efforts of WestCare Arizona and our consortium, the development of healthy prevention, treatment, and recovery strategies will assist in making a shift toward compassion and inclusion to make a positive impact on our community.
“The opposite of addiction is not sobriety. The opposite of addiction is connection.”

The Rural Communities Opioid Response Program (RCORP) is a multi-year initiative supported by the Health Resources and Services Administration (HRSA) to address barriers to access in rural communities related to substance use disorder (SUD), including opioid use disorder (OUD). RCORP funds multi-sector consortia to enhance their ability to implement and sustain SUD/OUD prevention, treatment, and recovery services in underserved rural areas (hrsa.gov/rural-health/rcorp).
Dedicated to working in partnership with the communities and agencies we serve, our philosophy is to empower everyone who comes into contact with us to engage in a process of healing, growth, and change that will benefit them, their families, their coworkers, and their communities.
WestCare Arizona needs your expertise in a collaborative effort to decrease the morbidity and mortality rate of opioid use in the Mohave County area.
Most people suffering from OUD currently go untreated. WestCare Arizona would like to invite your organization to join the RCORP consortium in our efforts to uplift the human spirit and get these people the help they deserve!
