Referral to Programs
Finding the right resources for your needs is difficult when you don’t know what services and providers are out there. Let B.R.A.S.S. help you sort through the options and provide you with solid leads to the help you want and need. We provide referrals for:
- Treatment Services: Finding the right treatment program for your needs is important. B.R.A.S.S. can help you cut through the noise and find the treatment programs that best meet your individual needs and financial situation.
- Recovery Services: Maintaining sobriety can be challenging when you don’t have solid support systems to help guide you. Access to local recovery services such as support groups, medically assisted treatments (MAT), counseling services and peer recovery supporters (PRS) can improve your chance of success. B.R.A.S.S. can connect you with the recovery services that fit your recovery plan.
- Education Programs: Do you need help completing a high school diploma or GED? Perhaps you are interested in pursuing a career and need training? B.R.A.S.S. can identify appropriate training programs and providers to get you started on your education journey. (Can also assist with applying for financial aid through FAFSA.)
- Supportive Services: B.R.A.S.S. can help you find local resources to assist you such as assistance for food, rent, transportation and employment.
A pillar of the recovery journey is establishing a support system for your recovery plan. Support groups are a great resource for empowerment, learning coping strategies and feeling a part of a community with others who have a shared experience with substance use. B.R.A.S.S. sponsored support groups include:
- We Recover Together (Family Support Group): An open group for family members of those in active addiction or recovery. This support group meets every Thursday.
- B.R.A.S.S. Teens: An open group for students in grades 7-12 affected by substance use where they can ask questions, discuss sensitive topics and learn how to apply skills and tools to cope with real-world situations and build healthy relationships. This support group offers a judgment-free and confidential space for teens to explore and discuss topics such as peer pressure, dealing with stress and managing actions that stem from emotion. B.R.A.S.S. Teens meets on the second and fourth Mondays of the month.
- Military/Veterans Support Group: (Coming in June 2021): A closed recovery group for those struggling with substance use and have a military background. This support group will meet every other Tuesday.
- Other Local Support Groups: B.R.A.S.S. will help connect your to other area support groups that appeal to your recovery plan such as Alcoholics Anonymous, Al-Anon, Narcotics Anonymous or grief support groups. Let us help you find the support groups that are right for you!
Recovery Community Activities
Often times social events can be difficult for someone in recovery due to the stigma surrounding substance use and, especially, if their previous substance use was based in social activities. Participating in recovery community activities promotes social engagement in a safe and positive environment that is substance-free. Activities sponsored by local recovery organizations might include:
- Activity nights such as bowling or movie night
- Recovery picnics
- Game nights or tournaments
- Holiday parties
Brushing up on or learning new skills can be an important step to successful recovery. From learning about the basics of personal finance, computer skills and job search to custom workshops on legal issues associated with raising grandchildren, getting organized and scrapbooking for leisure, B.R.A.S.S. will offer access to a wide variety of topics for those seeking skills improvement.
Substance Use Education/Outreach
Reducing the stigma and misinformation surrounding substance use and overdose is key to understanding and fighting the disease of addiction. B.R.A.S.S. is committed to reducing the stigma surrounding substance use disorders and will participate in community education and outreach programs to separate fact from fiction on substance use.
