Center for Treatment Innovation Mobile Unit

STEUBEN COUNTY RESIDENTS

Due to the limited public transportation and resources in our rural county, many individuals struggling with opioid addiction do not have the means to get to treatment. Recognizing this need, we purchased the Center for Treatment Innovation unit that can be used as a mobile office allowing us to go into the most rural areas of our county and provide mobile assessments and help connect individuals with peer services that are critical in helping individuals struggling with opioid addiction. This mobile recovery unit will allow us to provide the following services in the community at the time of contact:

  • Assessment
  • Help with developing a plan of care
  • Help accessing food, shelter and other emergency and basic needs
  • Linkages and system navigation to behavioral health and health care services and substance abuse detox, treatment, and home and community based services
  • Outreach and engagement support
  • Assistance with removal of barriers towards recovery pathways
  • Relapse prevention planning including pre-crisis and crisis support key to preventing recidivism
  • Support and direction to activities that bring a sense of purpose, passion, and meaning to life
  • Coaching and Modeling of successful recovery lifestyles
  • Connecting individuals to “warm lines” (telephone support) and self-help groups
  • Recovery education
  • Comprehensive goal planning
  • Independent living skills development
  • Transitional supports
