Community Involvement and Sober Living

In hopes of gaining the feeling of being a part of the community, Guernsey Health Choices encourages residence of the houses to participate in community activities, events and also give back to the community. In doing so, they find new interests, make new contacts and enjoy the community in a positive way.  One of the first projects for community involvement has been the RECOVERY ROCKS project.

Drug Abuse Response Teams and Quick Response Teams are made up of law enforcement officers partnering with drug treatment providers and others who assist overdose survivors in the recovery process. Team members visit survivors after an overdose and offer counseling and referrals to drug rehabilitation facilities for assessment, detoxification, on-going drug treatment, and aftercare. These teams work to reduce overdose-related deaths, reduce repeated overdoses per victim, and increase the support network for survivors and their families.
