Wisconsin Addiction Recovery Helpline GFO-SA20185ARHL
The Wisconsin Department of Health Services (DHS) Division of Care and Treatment Services (DCTS) is seeking proposals from any local unit of government, tribe, or nonprofit organization/agency for implementation of a statewide Addiction Recovery Information, Referral, and Assistance Helpline. The results of this proposal process will be used to determine the recipient of one Grant Award with one-time funding of $400,000, with a possibility of additional years of funding if funding becomes available.

This Helpline will provide Information, Referral, and Assistance and will be used to reduce barriers faced by people seeking help with addiction-related needs. The service should have a focus on opioid addiction but also the capacity to respond to callers’ other addiction needs. Priority populations to be targeted to benefit from this service include pregnant women and people who inject drugs.

An important element of this service will involve providing assistance to callers in navigating through their insurance questions related to connecting to addiction services. This service will work to assist people regardless of their insurance status, in addition to significant others or professionals calling on their behalf. Another essential element of the service will be providing follow-up services to ensure that people seeking assistance have been successful in connecting with appropriate resources. For example, the organization could develop a procedure to follow up with callers meeting certain guidelines within a certain timeframe. In the event of learning the caller had experienced barriers or conflicts, the Helpline staff members will guide the caller through the process of filing a complaint, pursuing alternative resources, and/or pursuing conflict resolution.

PROPOSALS MUST BE RECEIVED BY 5/10/2018 4:00 PM CST

LATE PROPOSALS WILL BE REJECTED

FAXED OR EMAILED PROPOSALS WILL NOT BE ACCEPTED
