Programs Offered

Wisconsin Voices for Recovery at the UW-Madison Department of Family Medicine and Community Health have provided re-grant awards for organizations to employ Recovery Coaches and Certified Peer Support Specialists. Peer support providers will begin providing recovery support in hospital-based (Emergency Department) and other settings with individuals with an opioid use disorder. This statewide peer support network will function as a portion of the State Targeted Response to the Opioid Crisis. The ultimate goal of the program is to create sustainable peer support models across the state that will:

  • Increase treatment and recovery support service utilization of the target population
  • Reduce Emergency Department recidivism
  • Decrease the number of overdose fatalities in Wisconsin

Lighthouse Recovery Community Center has partnered with our two local hospitals, Holy Family and Aurora, to provide Recovery Coaches to individuals with an opioid use disorder and their family members in the Emergency Department and through referrals from other departments of the hospital.

HRSA- The Northeast AHEC region will focus on four key components with this grant award. The first will be to conduct a survey to assess readiness among pharmacies in the NEWAHEC region to provide medicated assisted treatment, tele-behavioral health services, recovery support services, and opioid education. The second will be to increase the number and distribution of community health workers-recovery coaches by partnering with Lighthouse Recovery Community Center to providing a training for 18 members. Third NEWAHEC will work with regional pharmacies to pilot two programs: partnering community health workers-recovery coaches from Lighthouse Recovery Community Center with patients receiving MAT in pharmacies and utilizing pharmacy students to provide patient call-back programs for new patients receiving an opioid prescription. The fourth component will be to develop training opportunities around understanding addiction, screening, and treatment of behavioral health for all health science students.
