Regional Recovery Consortium
The Regional Recovery Consortium is an initiative for those who have been impacted by Substance Use Disorder (SUD), including individuals, families, and community members to meet monthly to discuss the effect of addiction and implement a strategic plan that covers the following project areas: Membership, Stigma, Response, and Recovery. We strive to expand & improve a comprehensive and sustainable "Circle of Care" for those who live with SUD through regional collaboration.
To have a community free of Substance Use Disorder (SUD) and fatal overdoses.
To reduce the number of community members in Erie, Huron, Ottawa, and Sandusky Counties, living with SUD and experiencing fatal overdoses through regional cooperation and collaboration.
The Regional Recovery Consortium has four identified project areas that are further outlined in the Strategic Action Plan:
Project Lead: Steve Rucker,
Recruitment, engagement, and retention of members
Project Lead: Andrea Jones,
Reduce stigma associated with addiction by increasing knowledge and education around substance use disorder, the use of Narcan, and Medication Assisted Treatment
