MEDICATION ASSISTED RECOVERY – WITH DIGNITY

COMPASSION … COMMITMENT … CONNECTION … COMMUNITY

Meeting people where they are in their addiction and showing them the way Home.

We believe it is all about connection and community. Addiction is a disease, not a criminal justice issue nor a moral failing and that those still suffering or seeking recovery should be treated with compassion in a safe environment that promotes a sense of hope and well being.

Restoring Dignity to Recovery from Opioid Addiction

OVERDOSE WARNING NETWORK

OWN – is the first mobile and desktop application for first responders to enter overdose incident data. It will have one data repository that will store opioid overdose  incident data which will serve as an epidemiological indicator to provide incidence and prevalence data on opioid overdose data on local, state and national levels. It will be licensed by city/town and keyed by state /town.

The Overdose Warning Network was developed for First Responders including law enforcement, Hospital, Fire and EMS personnel and other individuals administering Naloxone in an opioid overdose event. It is also available for Android and iPhone.

Project Engage

Project Engage – is the first mobile Naloxone distribution program in the State of Maine. By August 1, 2018 it will add needle exchange services. The mobile unit, a restored camper, offers free treatment assessments and referrals and is staffed by Enso Recovery clinical staff members.

Choopers Foundation and Enso Recovery reopened the Sanford, Maine medication assisted treatment program previously operated by Spectrum Health Systems in 2016.  The clinic offers suboxone and vivitrol,  an intensive outpatient program, an aftercare program, ambulatory detoxification with suboxone and treatment for comorbid disorders. The program policies and procedures will be based on the 2015 American Association for Addiction Medicine’s (ASAM) new guidelines for best practices for opioid substitution treatment.

SYRINGE EXCHANGE

The incidence of Hepatitis C and HIV is closely associated with intravenous drug use.  In 2015, The Choopers Foundation  teamed up with Grace Street Recovery Services and Portland’s Frannie Peabody Center to operate a syringe exchange center at the Grace Street Services Lewiston program located at 550 Lisbon Street until another location could be secured. Treatment referral, HIV and Hepatitis C testing.
