Recovery Mini-Grant Awarded to Heartview
Posted 6/04/12 (Mon)
The North Dakota Department of Human Service’s Division of Mental Health and Substance Abuse recently awarded Heartview a recovery mini-grant. The grant is part of a larger statewide effort to develop a recovery-oriented system of care, which is individualized and builds on the strengths and resiliencies of individuals, families and communities. The goal is to achieve abstinence and improve health, wellness, and quality of life for those with alcohol and other drug addictions.
With the help of this grant, Heartview is launching the HEART Program (Help Everyone Achieve Recovery Today). This program will provide recovery-based support for individuals in recovery and their families, as they define them. The program will be open to any adult in recovery and their family from within the state of North Dakota.
Included are weekly educational, during which participants will learn how to recognize and communicate strengths of family members, how to support recovery, strategies to effectively manage emotions and stress, where to find community resources, relapse prevention steps, and re-intervention education. A support component will follow each educational session. Participants will also have access to a 24/7 private, on-line, support community to allow additional contact and assistance between the HEART sessions and into the future, after completion of the program.
