How A Community's Response To Substance Use Disorder Is Evaluated
Ensuring that residents have adequate available resources in the areas of community support, education, peer support, healthcare accessibility, harm reduction and legal guidance can dramatically increase success rates in the fight against substance use disorder.
Those communities attempting to expand capacity for quality treatment interventions to residents who are suffering from substance use disorder require further access to resources that are tailored to the needs of their residents, in the areas of community support, healthcare, provider support, additional resources for the incarcerated and streamlining of government services.
An essential and often overlooked aspect of success in the battle against substance use disorder is recovery support, which engages the community in areas of peer support, anti-stigma training for public officials and staff, employer resources, recovery-specific community support, work release and continuing education opportunities for justice-involved residents and post-recovery collegiate education.
