Recovery Support Services: Help at Home

With Recovery Support Services, our recovery coach and nurse will come to your home, to your coffee shop, and to your community. We’ll use a variety of strategies for recovery from addiction and alcohol abuse including urine screening, mobile application technology, transportation (limited to first month) and access to a gym membership.

Because Recovery Support Services is part of Project Courage’s licensed and accredited outpatient clinic, there will be a seamless integration of clinical services. For clients who first need stabilization, they can begin their journey in our Intensive Outpatient Program. From there, they will progress into the supportive in-home Recovery Support Services. 

Discover Your Path With Meaningful Recovery

Recovery is more than abstinence from substances, it’s about building a healthy, fulfilling, and purposeful life. The Recovery Support Services program at Project Courage provides tools and support to clients in early recovery, addressing eleven different areas of life where obstacles commonly appear. From employment and finances, to transportation and housing, we are with you every step of the way. To help build a foundations, clients receive: 

  • Recovery Coach—The Recovery Coach completes a recovery needs assessment and evaluation with the client to build a recovery support plan. This plan is set to reach powerful, effective, meaningful goals. A recovery coach becomes the hub of the individual’s in-home addiction treatment, providing support, tools, encouragement, and structure. Face-to-face contact, phone, and text are all ways the recovery coach and client stay connected. Additionally, the recovery coach serves as a liaison to community-based support networks and ensures the client’s clinical care is coordinated with all providers.
  • Registered Nurse—The in-home nurse is central to coordinating the client’s medical care. In addition to conducting a health assessment the in-home nurse will also coordinate medical and ancillary medical services as dictated by the client’s individual care.
  • Gym Membership—Maintaining physical activity is important, not only for bodily health but also for mental, emotional, and spiritual well-being. We provide you with a gym membership where you can start to build a routine. If you would like to go with one of our recovery coaches, we provide all of them with a paired membership as well!
  • Psychiatric Services—When we say, “recover on your terms,” we’re acknowledging that Recovery Support Services at Project Courage is truly a collaborative endeavor. We’re not telling our clients that they have thirty days to get better. We’re not telling our clients they can or cannot use medication to assist their recovery. Most importantly, we’re not telling our clients they have to come to our office and meet within the parameters allowed by our schedule.
  • Monthly Alternative Peer Group Events—It’s important to have fun in recovery. Project Courage’s monthly Alternative Peer Group (APG) events are a place for clients to come together and have fun with each other as well as staff. Go-karts, Six Flags, and Trivia Night are just a few of the many activities.
  • Soberlink—If you are struggling with alcohol abuse, Soberlink provides accountability through monitored breathalyzer check-ins.
  • TryCycle Data Systems—Acting as the tether between client and coach, TryCycle Data Systems is a way for you to voluntarily check-in with daily questions and journal entries. TryCycle has been effective in alerting coaches to possible risks before they happen.

The SAMHSA recovery model identifies four domains as critical to develop for lasting substance abuse recovery:

  • Purpose—conducting meaningful daily activities, such as a job, school volunteerism, family caretaking, or creative endeavors, and the independence, income, and recovery resources to participate in society
  • Community—having relationships and social networks that provide recovery support, friendship, love, and hope
  • Health—overcoming or managing one’s disease(s) or symptoms—for example, abstaining from use of alcohol, illicit drugs, and non-prescribed medications if one has an addiction problem—and, for everyone in recovery, making informed, healthy choices that support physical and emotional well-being
  • Home—having a stable and safe place to live. Creating an environment that is conducive to recovery, and healthy activities.
