Spotted Bull Recovery Resource Center Tribal Opioid Response 3-Year Evaluation
We love working in recovery and with recovery and inpatient treatment centers. Spotted Bull and Recovery Resource Center’s (SBRRC) TOR 1 Report highlights the essential work of staff and the community from 2018 to 2021. TOR provided much-needed funding for peer recovery support services, Naloxone training, and Medicine Wheel groups. Through primary and secondary data collection, we learned what it takes to address stigma, and a lack of understanding about medication assisted treatment (MAT). We identified key areas of leadership that were instrumental in the TOR program’s success at SBRRC, from community buy-in, capacity building, community-wide symposiums, peer involvement in recovery, and advocacy for MAT services. We know for sure that SBRRC will continue to be successful because of the dedicated and visionary team that shows up each day, ready to meet people where they are at and give them the options they need for recovery. Programs like TOR 1 at SBRRC make recovery possible.
