According to the Addiction Science & Clinical Practice Journal, North America is currently in the midst of an opioid crisis that claimed nearly 70,000 lives in the US in 2018 alone. Substance abuse disorders often erode social functioning, education/vocational skills, and positive community and family ties. Thus, recovery involves rehabilitation-relearning or reestablishing healthy functioning, skills, and values as well as regaining physical and emotional health. Therapeutic communities such as sober homes are the best environment to foster this critical phase of healing.
JFRD provides NARCAN training and provides NARCAN to our Sober Living Homes. Special thanks to Laura Ray for her time and dedication.
CRC provides HIV & Hep C provides free HIV and HepC testing, information and offers free services to anyone who may test positive to any sober home interested in providing these services to residents.
Laura Viafora is the Project Director for The Safe and Healthy Neighborhoods Project with the City of Jacksonville’s Fire & Rescue Department. The multi-year project is funded by the Substance Abuse and Mental Health Services Administration. It aims to reduce opioid overdose deaths in Jacksonville by increasing community access to NARCAN, a nasal spray that can temporarily reverse the life-threatening effects of overdose.
I have profound feelings of gratitude and love for the sober house I lived in they created an environment of security, acceptance, understanding and compassion. Today I am happy and content and in large part is due to my personal experience at the sober living home and the staff that encouraged and empathized with me while also holding me accountable.
Being a part of this Alliance not only brings those with similar backgrounds together to share ideas, best practices and education, but it also allows us to stand together to show that what we do is making a difference In the community, in our own lives, and most importantly in the lives of others.
