Clinical Solutions Comprehensive Opioid Response with the Twelve Steps (COR-12™) In the midst of what federal authorities describe as the worst drug addiction epidemic in U.S. history, medication-assisted treatment for opioid addiction that incorporates long-term patient engagement has shown great promise. Yet, in too many communities this type of evidence-based, medication-assisted treatment is not available. The Hazelden Betty Ford Foundation developed the field’s most-innovative approach to treating heroin and opioid addiction. Our customized consulting services prepare your organization to implement the opioid addiction treatment program, COR-12™ with fidelity. Is your organization interested in adding medication-assisted treatment for opioid addiction? Through a three-day, cross-functional training, we will determine your organization's capabilities and capacity to deliver the program. Contact the Patient Care Network manager for more information. If your organization is interested in additional COR-12™ support and resources, we provide further consulting services on a fee-for-service basis.
