Flexibility and Collaboration are More Important Than Ever – Access our Trauma and Recovery-Oriented Toolkit
The opioid crisis has affected families across the nation. Approximately 10.3 million people live with an opioid use disorder and there were more than 46,000 opioid-related overdose deaths in 2018. We know that trauma is a significant driver of substance use disorders and scores on the Adverse Childhood Experience index are highly correlated with substance use disorders later in life.
How can you create sustainable system-wide change that addresses trauma and fosters recovery for those you serve?
The Trauma-informed, Recovery-oriented System of Care Toolkit, supported by the Indiana Family and Social Service Administration and piloted in 14 Indiana counties, is a field-informed toolkit developed by the National Council’s foremost experts in shaping recovery-oriented and trauma-informed approaches. It gives actionable guidance to create a framework to implement trauma-informed and recovery focused initiatives, along with scripts, tools, concrete strategies, and recommendations for your community.
You’ll gain the tools and practical examples to:
- Develop and implement trauma-informed frameworks for organizing substance use services within your community, such as identifying and responding to patients with trauma and substance use challenges.
- Create a framework that involves assessing organizational readiness of medication-assisted treatment and practices.
- Address individual and environmental risk factors for substance use through evidence-based programs and strategies.
