Certified Recovery Peer Advocates, using their professional training and lived experience, offer guidance, coaching and advocacy to individuals with substance use disorders or any other addiction-related barriers, and their families. Utilizing an innovative and individualized approach, Certified Recovery Peer Advocates (CRPA) use their personal experiences to relate to clients and help them navigate recovery options. This connection creates a sense of trust, security and self-assurance.
Our Mobile Clinician, an Licensed Mental Health Counselor (LMHC), provides assessments, screens for mental health related concerns, provide family support, 1-on-1 sessions and group work when appropriate and provides referrals and care coordination to higher levels of care.
Our staff includes a Transportation Coordinator. We provide recovery-related transportation assistance to individuals that need to get to places like rehab, detox, court, probation, parole and recovery support meetings. We can sometimes accommodate other recovery-related medical transportation for those that don’t otherwise qualify for traditional medical (Medicaid) transportation.
Mobile Health Clinic
This mobile clinic is a 17ft Mobile RV unit equipped with a waiting area and an exam room. It travels to various locations across Columbia & Greene County to help people who are struggling with active use or are in need of recovery supports. Visitors to the Mobile Clinic will have access to clinicians, peer advocates and a person to prescribe medications for addiction recovery. This mobile unit is also deployed as needed to react to urgent situations in the community such as overdose spikes and narcan trainings. We also use it to participate in outreach at community events. Other health services are offered on the RV through our partners at Greene County Family Planning, The Healthcare Consortium, and Catholic Charities Project Safe Point program.
Telehealth is the use of electronic devices such as cell phones, laptops and tablets to communicate via video with clinicians and medical providers who are able to deliver health care to patients at a distance. This is useful for patients that can’t get to a brick and mortar location for a visit with a provider.
Medications to Assist With Recovery
We have established strategic partnerships with a number of providers to connect individuals to Medication Assisted Treatment if that is the path they’d like to choose for their recovery.
Personalized Treatment & Recovery Plans
Everyone is entitled to develop and follow their own path to their recovery. What works for one individual may not work for another. We strive to assist people in developing and personalizing the plan that is right for their individual circumstances. Recovery is possible for everyone.
