EVERYDAY IS A SECOND CHANCE!
Project CARE (Collaborative Access to Recovery Engagement) is an overdose response team in collaboration with Lifespring Health Systems and the Jeffersonville Police Department. This program is designed to provide support to individuals within 24-72 hours following an overdose using a Quick Response Team Model.
The Clark County Quick Response Team is a collaborative effort involving law enforcement, mental health providers, medical care providers, and first responders. It’s designed to provide support to individuals within 24 to 72 hours following an overdose.. This is considered the “recovery window”, a time when individuals with a substance use disorder are thought to be more open to accepting help. The Project CARE initiative links individuals to treatment right at their doorstep, turning a crisis into an opportunity.
Our goal is to decrease the number of overdose fatalities we see in our community through harm reduction strategies. We look forward to continuing to empower individuals in our community to turn crisis into opportunity.
An update from Project CARE Program Manager, Kelsey Christian: “This program just wrapped up its first year, and we could not be more excited about the success we have seen so far. As a team, we successfully connected 61% of people to care in our community. The success of this program would not be possible without the outpouring of support from both agencies and the ability to link individuals with Substance Use Disorder (SUD) to treatment right at their doorstep.”
