Recovery Activities

One of the primary areas of work for the HRSA RCORP Implementation award involves completing key tasks in the area of opioid use recovery. The three key recovery-related tasks are listed below. Clicking on the activity in each box will give more information about how COP-RCORP undertook implementing that activity. The COP-RCORP Master consortium supports work by local consortia related to identification, access, and navigation of treatment and recovery supports for SUD/OUD.
Enable individuals, families, and caregivers to find, access, and navigate evidence-based and/or best practices for affordable treatment and recovery support services for SUD/OUD, including home and community-based services and social supports such as transportation, housing, childcare, legal aid, employment assistance and case management.
Each local consortium has approached recovery navigation in a different way. Ashtabula County’s Substance Abuse Leadership Team distributed informational cards detailing recovery support services, increased social media outreach regarding availability of treatment, and updated their substance use disorder resources manual for English and Spanish speakers. This community consortium also hosted an encompass training offered by the state for Ashtabula County families and community members. In Fairfield County, the ADAMH Board funds the 211 agency that provides information transportation, housing, treatment, and recovery and a navigator position to assist residents in locating treatment and recovery supports. The Fairfield consortium also started Hometown Help, an office in Pleasantville that provides information, intake, and screening as well as treatment services. The provider of Hometown Help is working with the local elementary school to distribute information and will be starting a group for loved ones that have a person in their life with SUD. The school has offered to provide childcare for group members.
Sandusky and Seneca county consortiums also focused on distributing information to increase knowledge of resources and support navigation.
Develop recovery communities, recovery coaches, and recovery community organizations to expand the availability of and access to recovery support services.

The Master consortium approach to recovery activity 2 was to convene a workgroup to discuss workforce development. More on that important work can be found here.

Individual consortiums have also worked independently to build recovery communities by providing and supporting Peer Support Trainings. Ashtabula County provided peer support training for over 50 individuals and implemented one-month follow up post-training to help achieve Peer Certification. The Fairfield County Opiate Task Force and the Fairfield County ADAMH Board also provided three Peer Support Trainings in 2021. Seneca and Sandusky community consortiums both provided trainings and are assisting with recruitment for more Peer Support Specialists.

Enhance discharge coordination for people leaving inpatient treatment facilities and/or the criminal justice system who require linkages to home and community-based services and social supports. These services and organizations may include case management, housing, employment, food assistance, transportation, medical and behavioral health services, faith-based organizations, and sober/transitional living facilities
Part of the benefit to having a Master Consortium is that individual communities have the independence to tackle some of the core activities on their own, using strategies that work best for them. Fairfield and Seneca consortiums have both been able to address discharge coordination by partnering with existing agencies locally.
Fairfield was able to encourage a provider agency that engages in discharge coordination to take an active role in the Opiate Task Force. This agency, New Horizons, provides “in reach” to those being discharged from prison and assists with treatment needs and community supports. Similarly, Seneca has partnered with local recovery groups including BRASS, FACTOR, and OhioCan to assist with their ongoing efforts to address discharge coordination.
