OTP Quality Improvement Work group

At the request of Delegate Hammen during a legislative briefing in February, 2016, the Department of Health and Mental Hygiene created an Opioid Treatment Program Work Plan, (OTPWP) which outlines the Department’s plan and timeline for implementing strategies related to improvement of Opioid Treatment Programs. The Department had previously been strategizing with interested parties in Baltimore City on this topic. The OTPWP will have a statewide impact.

In order to assist in accomplishing the goals and objectives of the OTPWP, BHA created an OTP Stakeholder Workgroup, which is an expansion of the existing Opioid Treatment Quality of Care Workgroup. Workgroup membership includes representation from the Behavioral Health Administration (BHA), the Local Addictions Authorities (LAA), Medical Care Programs (MA), Opioid Treatment Programs (OTPs), Community Representatives, and Consumer Advocates.
