Supportive Substance Use Disorder Services

Drug Related Harm Reduction Programs

Programs whose objectives are to protect people from the potentially deadly effects of the drugs they use, reduce HIV risk, increase access to treatment services and reduce public drug use and improper disposal of hypodermic needles and syringes.

Relapse Prevention Programs

Programs that provide structured therapy groups or other interventions which help recovering drug and/or excessive alcohol users make the cognitive, behavioral and attitudinal changes that are necessary to prevent them from returning to their previous patterns of use. The program helps participants deal in a very focused way with a wide variety of issues that have an impact on their commitment to sobriety and may include topics like exercise, nutrition, boredom, addictive behavior, looking forward, work and recovery, guilt and shame, the role of 12-step programs, staying busy, truthfulness, trust, repairing relationships, anger management, money management and dealing with feelings.

Substance Use Disorder Crisis Intervention

Programs that provide in-person immediate response services for people who are in life-threatening situations due to a drug overdose or acute intoxication. Included are 24-hour facilities which have emergency intake capabilities and organizations that have mobile units which allow staff to intervene directly at the scene.

Substance Use Disorder Drop In Programs

Programs based on a harm reduction model that provide a safe and supportive environment which allows individuals who use drugs and/or alcohol to drop in and access multiple related services including group and individual counseling, day beds, showers, clothing, medical care, needle exchanges, sterile injection equipment and overdose prevention training, as well as information and referral, social activities and snacks. The programs may be structured for specific populations such as women or sex trade workers or be open to all.

Substance Use Disorder Hotlines

Programs that provide immediate assistance for people who have problems related to excessive use of alcohol and/or use of other drugs or are at risk of a substance use related disorder. Services may include defusing the crisis, ensuring the person's safety and information about alternatives the person may explore to begin recovering. Substance use related hotlines are also typically available to significant others of people who are involved with drugs and/or excessive alcohol use. Hotline staff can generally be reached via the telephone, email, live chat, texting and/or instant message (IM).

Substance Use Disorder Peer Recovery Coach Services

Programs that connect individuals who have a substance use disorder with a recovery coach who supports patients, family members and treatment personnel in launching the individual's recovery process or stabilizing recovery when needed. While they don't provide clinical services, recovery coaches, as people with lived addiction recovery experience, demonstrate that people can recover. They offer guidance in creating and following through with a recovery plan that reflects the individual's goals, provide support through the inevitable ups and downs, and hope to those living with an alcohol or drug use disorder. Some hospital emergency departments have outside recovery coaches on call, who connect with the client following an opioid overdose or other alcohol or drug related medical crisis. In other cases, clients are introduced to a recovery coach when they begin treatment in an inpatient program or at a community based outpatient treatment facility, or are connected through other channels e.g., outreach programs. Some people engage a recovery coach as a first step to help them figure out what other type of professionals/services they need while others get a recovery coach after rehabilitation to help them make the transition home and continue to support their sobriety.

Substance Use Disorder Referrals

Programs that link people who are in need of drug and/or alcohol use disorder services with appropriate resources.

Substance Use Disorder Treatment Expense Assistance

Programs that provide subsidies which support all or a portion of the treatment costs for income eligible individuals who have or are at risk of an alcohol and/or other drug use disorder.
