HOPE STR Grant Recipient
Early this year, in an effort to address the nation-wide opioid epidemic, the federal Department of Health and Human Services (HHS) released the first round of funding for a two-year State Targeted Response (STR) grant. The Substance Abuse and Mental Health Administration (SAMSHA) has allocated a grant for each state, aimed at reducing the number of individuals with Opioid Use Disorders (OUDs) and the number of opioid related deaths. HOPE is proud to contribute to the overarching goals of the STR and will provide peer-support services via outreach and navigation services. The HOPE STR Outreach Team will seek to identify high-risk populations, provide assistance to individuals for improved access to Medication Assisted Treatment (MAT), and offer tools to support overall recovery success. The STR Outreach Team is working closely with providers of treatment, prevention and education services to meet the goals of the STR project and ultimately save lives. For more information, contact the STR Outreach Team at 520.639.7039 or STROutreach@hopetucson.org. We're in it Together!
HOPE as Specialty Provider
On May 1, 2017, HOPE officially became a Specialty Provider of Behavioral Health Services, offering support and guidance to indviduals throughout Southern Arizona. HOPE continues to operate as a Peer and Family run organization with a focus on Recovery, Wellness and Reintegration; meeting Members on their terms and helping them to navigate a path to recovery. Our services are provided through three licensed Outpatient Clinics, offering individual and group therapy to adult populations, in addition to a Supervised Day Program that provides support services to those who may benefit from a more structured environment of care.
In our commitment to the health and wellness of our communities, HOPE expands their reach through Community Programming designed to bridge gaps in care through collaboration with local providers. Our PACT (Peer After Care Team) provides support to individuals post-crisis to assist with maintaining stability; building community supports, navigation services and connection to Health Home centers. The CRTT (Community Reintegration Transition Team) offers support to adult individuals who are involved with the criminal justice system, providing assistance with meeting court obligations and navigating community resources. Our Community Programs are designed to bridge gaps, improve access to care and outcomes, and lower the cost of healthcare overall.
