Staff from LifelineED, our Opioid Overdose Recovery Program, are activated by a local hospital to provide recovery support services for individuals treated with Narcan (Naloxone) as a result of an opioid overdose.
LifelineED services can only be initiated by hospital providers. Services include:
- Support for individuals upon discharge from the hospital with follow up phone calls and supportive services.
- Linking individuals to treatment and recovery services.
- Providing education to members of the community on overdose, prevention, and on obtaining Naloxone, a drug that reverses the effects of an opioid overdose when administered.
- Providing additional resources to individuals interested in recovery and their family members.
Upon discharge from the hospital, a LifelineED Recovery Specialist is available to introduce individuals to the program and offer 8 weeks of follow-up recovery support. The LifelineED Navigator can meet with the individual within 24 hours of discharge to provide linkages to recovery resources including treatment, shelter assistance, and transportation. The goal of LifelineED is to help people stay engaged in recovery.
Volunteers are needed to support and empower individuals on the path to recovery at our Living Proof Recovery Center where participants find, maintain, and enhance life in recovery. All services at Living Proof Recovery Center are peer-led and volunteer driven and designed for people considering, entering, or already in recovery.
Your involvement as a volunteer is a great way to help your local community. We ask that all volunteers have lived experience with addiction recovery. Living Proof is in need of volunteers who can assist with a variety of tasks including:
- Telephone & Community Outreach
- Workshop Facilitator
- Support Group Leader
- Special Events Organzier
- Front Desk Assistant
- Office Maintenance
