Telephone Recovery Support– an innovative, peer to peer, recovery support service. TRS provides weekly phone calls to people in recovery from alcohol and/or drug addiction. Trained TRS volunteers call to “check in” and ask how people are doing managing their recovery. Volunteers are trained to provide support, encouragement and information about recovery resources. TRS helps reduce relapse and enhances the recovery experience. 1Vozco.com
The beauty is in the simplicity. TRS helps people stay in recovery. Sometimes just a phone call can make someone feel wanted, cared about and included. Dare, we say “loved”. When making the call, the volunteer will feel rewarded when they have spoken with someone. They share in joys and sorrows, triumphs and setbacks. They have the satisfaction of giving back, of making a difference. It’s a classic win-win scenario.
By failing to include diversity in our messaging and our messengers, we are leaving out racial and ethnic minorities. While it is doubtful that this is intentional, the outcome is the same. The recovery movement is exacerbating already existing disparities in treatment. This needs to change if we are to have a unified front in creating positive norms with regard to addiction, treatment, and recovery… Angelo Lagares, Founder Latino Recovery Advocates
Una Voz – the Recovery Movement stories need to be heard. Development of a robust community of support, adequate, accessible treatment options, and greater acceptance of individuals living with behavioral health conditions are a missing quotient in Colorado.
Peer driven recovery support services empower people living in recovery to extend their own success to those looking for it. It is mutually beneficial and has been demonstrated to improve outcomes for individuals engaged in treatment.
The Substance Abuse and Mental Health Services Administration (SAMHSA) identified four recovery dimensions that overlap with social determinants of health, these include; health, home, purpose, and community. The work of the Una Voz collaborative incorporates these dimensions by providing access to services (health), purpose for both the recovery coach and the client, and a supportive community.
Uno Voz hopes to elevate the recovery community in Colorado through increased awareness, creation of standardized data collection, and identification of key performance indicators. Additionally, it would provide an opportunity to mobilize the various communities of support and give legitimacy to the recovery voice.
There are solutions to the behavioral health crisis we are facing in Colorado – the right level of publicity combined with practical solutions for addressing it could be the catalyst for change.
