Recover Wyoming, has launched a new Telephone Recovery Support (TRS) program beginning April 1st. TRS is an innovative peer-to-peer support service which places calls to individuals who are in recovery, or seeking recovery, from substance use disorder and/or mental health diagnoses.
Staff and trained volunteers who are in long-term recovery themselves, make weekly calls to "check in" on TRS participants. Those individuals are offered support, encouragement, information, and resources that may help them seek or maintain their recovery. This is a state-wide program and is modeled after TRS programs across the nation and by other Recovery Community Organizations (RCOs) in the U.S.
TRS referrals sources include; mental health and substance use treatment centers and providers, jails/prisons, friends, family, and self-referrals. For more information or to sign up for the Telephone Recovery Support Program, contact Recover Wyoming at (307) 421-7261 or visit the Recovery Center at 122 West Lincolnway in Cheyenne. Funding for TRS is provided by the Wyoming Department of Health/Behavioral Health Division.
