A Quick Response Team is a “Naloxone-Plus” model of pre-arrest diversion. QRTs provide an integrated response to help connect individuals who experience an opioid overdose or illicit drug event with treatment and recovery services.
A QRT often includes first responders (law enforcement, fire and EMS), clinicians and peer mentors (living examples that recovery is possible). Members of the QRT visit the home of a person who recently overdosed and offer support services to the individual and their family. QRT members then follow up to encourage the person to seek treatment and help navigate obstacles to treatment. Individuals and their families rely on the QRT for emotional support, information, coaching, encouragement and resources.
If you would like more information about QRTs or pre-arrest diversion or if you need to suggest an edit to this directory, please feel free to reach out to Lisa Myers at firstname.lastname@example.org or 513-458-6629.
