OUR STORY

The Governor’s Institute, a 501(c)(3) non-profit corporation was founded in 1990 to improve how the health care professions, particularly physicians, prevent, identify, and treat substance use disorders. Today, the Governor’s Institute remains an important partner and resource, providing innovative professional education and technical assistance, workforce development, networking opportunities and other collaborations among research and educational programs, professional organizations, and clinics, hospitals and other treatment facilities.

MEETING TOMORROW’S CHALLENGES TODAY

Never has the work of the Institute been more critical than it is today. The current transformation of the health care system from a fee for service/acute care focus to a more integrated, recovery-oriented, and value based system necessitates a more comprehensive and integrated approach to addressing substance use disorders across the continuum of prevention to early intervention to treatment to recovery. GI initiatives are designed to facilitate this transformation, creating solutions to the deep rooted issues and significant direct and indirect costs of substance use disorders.
