Explanation

The City of Columbus Department of Public Safety, Division of Fire needs to modify existing contracts with vendors associated with the City’s Rapid Response Emergency Addiction Crisis Team (RREACT). RREACT is an innovative outreach service operated by the Division of Fire to actively address the opioid crisis negatively impacting far too many Columbus residents. RREACT outreach includes firefighters/paramedics, Crisis Intervention Team certified peace officers, a substance use case manager, a registered SUD nurse, a family case manager, and trauma specialist. RREACT proactively connects and builds relationships with opioid users to 1) forge treatment and recovery pathways for users, and 2) provide multi-sector social service navigation and trauma counseling for children and other caregivers in the home. This multi-disciplinary outreach team goes directly into communities to connect with individuals who survive overdose (after Narcan© administration) but then refuse EMS transport to the emergency room. At these follow up meetings, team members assess immediate health needs, provide resource referrals, and create opportunities for users and family/household members to link with harm reduction supplies, treatment programs, trauma services, and social benefit supports.

EMERGENCY ACTION: This ordinance is submitted as an emergency so as to continue these important program services and to allow the financial transactions to be posted to the City’s accounting system as soon as possible.

FISCAL IMPACT: This ordinance authorizes the expenditure of $72,534.00 from the General Government Grants Fund, $22,534.00 via Project G342000 United State Centers for Disease Control Overdose Data to Action, and $50,000.00 via Project G342100 Comprehensive Opioid, Stimulant, and Substance Abuse Site-based Program (COSSAP).
