In light of the recent impacts from COVID-19, communities across Ohio are reporting major spikes in drug overdose deaths. In May for example, Cuyahoga County saw a historic peak, reporting 66 overdose deaths. With the urgent needs of the community continuing to rise and an estimated 10% or less of all Ohio facilities offering the complete spectrum of services needed, statewide organizations relink.org and Hope Over Heroin have teamed up to deliver one of the most comprehensive addiction recovery systems available to help those struggling.
Hope Over Heroin, most recognized for its faith-based outdoor rallies, recently launched its new Partners in Recovery Continuum of Care Program. This program connects those who reach out for help to a peer recovery navigator and/or faith mentor to guide them through a six-phase path to successful recovery. Hope Over Heroin’s team assesses, modifies, and tracks the individual through each phase of treatment and recovery, allowing them to provide accurate outcome reporting not limited by individual facility reporting requirements. The goal is to return people to productive functioning in the family, workplace, community, and church.
Relink.org, supported by The Dalton Foundation, offers a real-time platform connecting those in immediate need to appropriate resources and is a celebrated solution for anyone seeking the spectrum of addiction recovery, human trafficking, and incarceration reentry services. This tool puts life-saving information at your fingertips, with the most up-to-date listing of resources available by location. Rosalie Canfield, Hope Over Heroin’s Operations Director states, “Relink.org saves hours in our placement process. It is the reason, on multiple levels, we can offer our Partners in Recovery Continuum of Care Program.”
Through this partnership, the thousands of individuals looking for help on relink.org each month can now speak to a live Hope Over Heroin recovery navigator with the click of a button. Identifying the right help for everyone can be a cumbersome process, especially for those unfamiliar with the requirements. Relink.org is a great tool that allows Hope Over Heroin to effectively and efficiently implement their program. Relink.org serves as the catalyst to identify resources and Hope Over Heroin provides the necessary ongoing support, by addressing the underlying causes of addiction and helping individuals serve as contributing members of society again once they are ready.
Those interested in help for addiction should call 844-HOPE-3777 or visit Relink.org.
