Development of Recovery Support Services Funding Model and Peer Support Capacity Building, Implementation, Evaluation and Integration Into Crisis Intervention Program
Alliance for Youth is a nonprofit organization that advances healthy youth development through a collaborative approach to substance use disorder education, prevention, intervention, and treatment. Sober Life is a program within Alliance for Youth that provides peer and recovery support services. With this grant, Alliance for Youth will partner with Alluvion Health to provide peer support services for Alluvion's Crisis Intervention Program. The Crisis Intervention Program decreases relapse rates among people struggling with substance use disorders and diverts people in crisis away from emergency rooms and jails. This partnership will help develop a sustainable funding model for peer support and expand services in Great Falls and North Central Montana. Funding will support staff salaries and contracts for billing and clinical supervision for peer support. Partners include Alluvion Health and the local Crisis Intervention Program organizations.
