Free Through Recovery is a community based behavioral health program designed to increase recovery support services to individuals involved with the criminal justice system who have behavioral health concerns.
Free Through Recovery participants will work with local providers to receive:
- Care Coordination: Includes an ongoing source of connection, helping participants access treatment and recovery support services, and creatively addressing barriers to individual success. It also includes the provision of assessment, care planning, referrals, and monitoring collaboration with clinical services and probation and parole.
- Recovery Services: Includes access to supportive housing, educational opportunities, meaningful employment, leisure activities and wellness, family and community social supports, parenting education, spiritual engagement, nourishment assistance programs, and any other individualized resources needed to help participants lead a healthy and fulfilling life.
- Peer Support: Connection with a peer who has similar lived experience. Peer support specialists provide mentorship, advocacy and additional recovery support.
The mission of Free Through Recovery is to improve healthcare outcomes and reduce recidivism by delivering high-quality community behavioral health services linked with community supervision.
