Texas Targeted Opioid Response

One in four Texans has experienced an opioid overdose or knows someone who has. The Texas Targeted Opioid Response (TTOR) is a public health initiative with a mission to save lives and provide life-long support to Texans with opioid and stimulant use disorders by expanding access to prevention, integrated, treatment, and recovery support services. HHSC established TTOR in May 2017 with funding from the Substance Abuse and Mental Health Services Administration (SAMHSA).

  • Prevention programming connects communities to resources throughout Texas, raising awareness about prescription opioid misuse, distributing the life-saving overdose reversal drug naloxone, and stopping substance use disorder before it starts.
  • Integrated services implement prevention, treatment, and recovery strategies in community, clinical, and criminal justice settings to improve care for people.
  • Treatment expands the capacity of physicians and clinics across Texas to offer evidence-based treatment to support people struggling with opioid and stimulant use disorders.
  • Recovery increases the availability and effectiveness of support services for people in long-term recovery by expanding access to equitable recovery housing, employment services, and peer support groups.

The TTOR program aims to address the opioid crisis by increasing access to medications for opioid use disorder and reducing opioid-related overdose deaths through its evidence-based programming.

Additional information about the TTOR program is available by accessing the TTOR interactive dashboard, viewing the TTOR brochure (PDF), or by visiting the Texas Targeted Opioid Response website. TTOR also shares annual updates through the TTOR Report Card.
