Buncombe County Post-Overdose Response Team

Buncombe County Post-Overdose Response Team

Paramedics talking to a man

The Buncombe County Post Overdose Response Team (PORT) addresses critical gaps in care for substance use and other medically-assisted treatment (MAT) programs in Asheville. A diverse mix of professionals makes up the team, including community paramedics, peer support specialists, mental health clinicians and program managers. By partnering with Dogwood, the PORT expanded its services to provide mobile Suboxone administration twenty-four hours a day, seven days a week, and a front-line bridge to care, providing medications to keep patients compliant with their opioid recovery until they can be seen by their regular providers or resume their recovery program.
