Telephone Recovery Support
We provide free telephone recovery support to help people stay well from addiction. Our trained volunteers in recovery make weekly telephone calls to individuals at any stage of the wellness process.
The calls are an opportunity to check in with clients, identify any issues and connect them to community resources as needed. The service is to help clients manage their disease and prevent a reoccurrence of symptoms by providing continuing support and assistance.
Research of telephone recovery support programs show they are an effective way to improve addiction wellness. More than 80 percent of our telephone recovery support clients remain well and in recovery after one year.
Clients are enrolled for an initial 12-week program but can continue receiving calls as long as they wish. Referrals primarily come from area treatment programs, counselors, employers and word-of-mouth. The service is open to anyone.
What are the benefits? In addition to being provided at no cost, telephone support provides other benefits for clients, including:
- Convenience (less disruption to daily life);
- Cost (no travel or child care);
- Safety (for clients in high-risk environments);
- Accessibility (for clients in rural areas or who have transportation issues); and
- Adaptability (varying length of contact based on client needs).
