Welcome to the Ohio Substance Use Disorders Center of Excellence (SUD COE)

Ohio DMHAS logo

As an integral part of Ohio's response to the substance use crisis, the Ohio SUD COE, established through the collaborative efforts of the Center for Evidence-Based Practices (CEBP) and the Begun Center for Violence Prevention Research and Education at Case Western Reserve University, positions itself as a pivotal training partner to prepare SUD professionals. Supported by a significant grant from the federal American Rescue Plan Act, directed by the Substance Abuse and Mental Health Services Administration (SAMHSA), our initiative is dedicated to addressing the critical challenges posed by substance use disorders in Ohio—a state marked by the nation's fourth-highest rate of unintentional drug-overdose deaths.
