WHAT IS PARTNERING 4 RECOVERY?
Our Peer Support Specialist helps those suffering from mental health and/or addiction navigate a personal path to recovery by building on individual strengths and successes. Peer support specialists share the unique “lived experience” of recovering from mental illness and/or addiction issues at some point in their lives.
WHO IS ELIGIBLE?
Anyone who is willing to put in the work toward recovery. Our catchment area is the four counties surrounding Lynchburg (Amherst, Appomattox, Bedford, Campbell) and Lynchburg itself. They will be assessed, referred to resources in the area and/or they will be expected to complete a series of appointments leading up to the completion of a recovery plan. The referrals could be for medications, therapy, mutual support groups, etc. The goal is to provide clients with the tools they need to help them feel more in control and help them discover how to get more stable in their life.
IS THERE A COST?
Currently there is no cost associated with this program. This is a grant funded program. In the future we are hoping to be able to bill Medicare and their MCO’s for covered services.
