APCP Focus Groups

The Alabama Provider Capacity Project in your community

The Alabama Provider Capacity Project (APCP) bridges the gap between behavioral health providers, social service representatives, workforce developers and other relevant stakeholders in Alabama. While there are gaps in community needs for SUD treatment between rural and urban communities, challenges exist statewide.

Community focus groups and surveys in all 67 of Alabama’s counties will help APCP understand existing resources, local needs and gaps in our system. The first step in a larger effort to create solutions for Alabama’s substance use and opioid epidemic, participation will allow the public to make an impact on their community.

This research is not like just any regular focus group and survey. Participants from each county are individually selected based on their role in the community to encourage rich and informed discussions. The focus groups will be interactive and involve visual components to organize ideas about SUD treatment in Alabama.

Due to concerns regarding COVID-19, APCP will host virtual focus groups for counties with the necessary broadband capabilities. Extra safety measures will be in place for focus groups that will be held in person.
