Overdose Response Team (ORT)

What We Do

The Overdose Response Team (ORT) program is a harm reduction partnership between Recovery Resource Council and local EMS providers. The team conducts follow up visits with individuals who have recently experienced an overdose. 

During these visits, individuals and  their households are given  the opportunity to meet with a Peer Support Specialist or a Licensed Master Social Worker, receive and be trained on how to use Narcan, how to perform basic CPR, and ultimately discuss treatment and recovery options, if and when they are ready. 

Where We Serve

Currently, the Overdose Response Team partners with MedStar Mobile Healthcare to serve Tarrant County, Dallas Fire-Rescue to serve Dallas County, and Plano Fire-Rescue to serve the City of Plano.

Recovery Resource Council is actively working on expanding the program to nearby counties and municipalities.
