Peer Support and Recovery Coaching
We have been there, We can help.
Peer Support Specialists inspire hope that people can and do recover;
walk with people on their recovery journeys;
dispel myths about what it means to have a mental health condition or substance
use disorder; provide self-help education
and link people to tools and resources; and support people in identifying their goals, hopes, and dreams, and creating a roadmap for getting there.
We meet people where they are in their journey and provide tools to save lives.
Narcan nasal spray contains naloxone hydrochloride. Naloxone blocks or reverses the effects of opioid medication, including extreme drowsiness, slowed breathing, or loss of consciousness. Narcan nasal spray is used in an emergency situation to treat a possible opioid overdose in an adult or child. We offer free Narcan to anyone who asks.
Fentanyl Test Strip Kits:
Fentanyl test strips (FTS) may prevent drug overdoses. FTS are small strips of paper that can detect the presence of fentanyl in all different kinds of drugs (cocaine, methamphetamine, heroin, etc.) and drug forms (pills, powder, and injectables).
FTS may provide people with important information about fentanyl
in the drug supply so they can take steps to reduce the risk of overdose. We offer these kits upon request for free, no questions asked.
Community Outreach and Education
We are in this together.
Educating and bringing awareness to our community about what Substance Use Disorder is and how to manage this chronic disease is the first step in fighting stigma. Stigma is a huge barrier that prevents so many from reaching out for help. By arming our community with knowledge and providing resources, we can fight the impact that SUD has. The Savannah River ROC hosts a variety of public events every month to ensure that this education and resources are easily accessible to the community we serve.
