Great Rivers Regional System for Addiction Care is an innovative approach to addressing addiction and recovery efforts. The system, funded through a $2 million award to Marshall Health by the Merck Foundation, brings together 70+ organizations and agencies in Cabell, Jackson, Kanawha and Putnam counties in West Virginia.

Great Rivers is building an infrastructure and strengthening collaborations in the communities and neighborhoods hit hardest by the opioid epidemic in West Virginia in order to have a measurable impact in saving lives and changing the course for individuals, children and families impacted by substance use disorder.
