• Subline Title: To Help Fight the Stigma of Addiction

Public Health - Dayton & Montgomery County’s Addiction Services program is now named Recovery Services.The name has been changed to help fight the stigma associated with addiction and to acknowledge that the journey of recovery is a life-long one that individuals must make.

Recovery Services provides substance use and co-occurring disorder screening and treatment, problem gambling treatment, eye movement desensitization and reprocessing therapy, and trauma informed practices, prevention and intervention services that help individuals and families find what works for them.

“For those suffering from addiction there are many barriers to their path to recovery and living with the stigma of addiction should not be one of them, said William Roberts, Senior Manager, Recovery Services. “The name change helps reaffirm to individuals seeking help that they will be valued and supported along their path to recovery.”

Recovery Services’ trained peer supporters provide those seeking help with someone that understands the struggle of addiction through personal experience, as well as the process of recovery. As a result, the peer supporters are in a unique position to help individuals start and continue their path to recovery.

Other services include Adult Outpatient, COR-12 Medication Assisted Treatment, Telehealth Services, Recovery Outreach, Recovery Housing, Strengthening Families parenting program, and referrals to other agencies as needed.
