Spotted Bull Resource Recovery Center Tribal Opioid Response (TOR) 1 Report 2018 to 2021

We love working in recovery and with recovery and inpatient treatment centers. Spotted Bull Resource and Recovery 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 and give them the options they need for recovery. Programs like TOR 1 at SBRRC make recovery possible. #recovery #prevention

Eastern Shoshone Recovery Strategic Plan 2021-2022

Every year ESR hosts a retreat for staff and invites the AKA team to join in a 2-3day planning session that captures accomplishments and plans for the upcoming year. These retreats are not what you would expect. This year we met at a remote cabin in Wyoming and enjoyed lots of laughs, excellent food, walks in nature, and we even watched Reservation Dogs. Over three days’ conversations shifted from our favorite movies and concerts to more serious topics like unresolved trauma, grief, loss, abstinence, and even paradigmatic differences in how people heal and recover. Our role is to advocates and support ESR’s overall strategic plan. We capture what is being said, identify strengths and weaknesses for each of the Medicine Wheel domains, and create recommendations and strategies that link the various ESR programs and funding with what staff need to be successful in the upcoming year. This report does not do the strategic planning retreat justice (you had to be there) but it does help ESR and our team be intentional in the work that we do and how we do it. #recovery #prevention
