About the bill
H.R. 5327 directs the Secretary of Health and Human Services (HHS) to award grants to at least 10 providers that offer treatment services for people with opioid use disorder. These Comprehensive Opioid Recovery Centers would serve as models for comprehensive treatment and recovery and would utilize the full range of Food and Drug Administration approved medications and evidence-based treatments, have strong linkages with the community, generate meaningful outcomes data, and dramatically improve the opportunities for individuals to establish and maintain long-term recovery. Either directly or through coordination with other entities, Centers must provide services including withdrawal management, counseling, recovery housing, community-based and peer recovery support services, job training and placement assistance, pharmacy and toxicology services, and a secure and confidential electronic health information system.
