Medication for Opioid Use Disorder (MOUD) is used at opioid treatment program (OTP) facilities as a method for assisting patients in recovery. If you have a patient in need of these services, refer to our listing of opioid treatment programs (OTP) in Washington State.
In addition, the Washington State Targeted Response (STR): Hub and Spoke Project funds multiple, geographically-based, integrated networks of care — called hub and spoke networks — for OUD treatment.

OTNs are second generation hub and spoke treatment sites that serve individuals with opioid use disorder. OTNs are positioned to provide MOUD in nontraditional treatment settings such as emergency departments, jails, syringe services, homeless shelters, and fire departments. These sites initiate medication treatment and make referrals to community providers for ongoing care.
