SOR funding led to the establishment of The Doorways on January 1, 2019. The 9 Doorway locations throughout the State create clear points of entry for any resident with a substance use disorder (SUD) with help less than an hour away. Funding is expanding access so that all the Doorways help clients access MAT, peer recovery supports services, and evidence-based prevention programs, among other activities.
