NACCHO Commends Mosaic Group’s Innovative ‘Reverse the Cycle’ Program

Mar 4, 2024 | News

The Winter 2024 issue of NACCHO Exchange, the quarterly magazine of the National Association of County and City Health Officials (NACCHO), shines a spotlight on Reverse the Cycle (RTC), the Mosaic Group’s groundbreaking, comprehensive substance use response program designed for hospital emergency departments. 

Authored by Francis Higgins, Senior Program Analyst at NACCHO, the article titled “Emergency Department-Based, Peer-Led Substance Use Navigation Programs—A Promising Model” outlines RTC’s objectives and the transformative impact of substance use care navigation within emergency departments. 

Higgins emphasizes how RTC’s four-pillar model—comprising standardized screening, peer-led navigation, immediate medication access, and seamless post-discharge planning—holds the potential to reshape emergency care practices on a national scale. Higgins underscores the untapped potential of emergency departments in addressing patients with substance use disorders, stressing the need for standardized care and the integration of peer and local health department expertise to dismantle barriers to care and combat pervasive stigma.

“Mosaic Group partnered with NACCHO to launch the program in 13 hospitals across four states. The effort has already seen significant strides through thousands of patient screenings, thousands of peer interventions, hundreds linked to treatment, and countless lives touched. RTC is proving to be a game-changer in the fight against substance use disorders.”

At the Mosaic Group, we are committed to driving innovation and breaking down barriers to recovery. Join us in exploring the transformative potential of RTC. Together, we can revolutionize emergency care and offer hope to individuals in need.
