Wisconsin Voices for Recovery, Continuing Studies at Unviersity of Wisconsin-Madison, and Wisconsin Department of Health Services partnered to provide free continuing education opportunities for people in recovery, peer support providers, and other professionals.
Hospital-Based Recovery Coaching is an innovative and effective way to engage with people who have recently survived an opioid or other substance overdose or who may be hospitalized in the Emergency Department or ED setting for other substance use disorder and substance misuse issues. The main goal of this new program are to: increase recovery support services and connection of individuals seeking support; reduce Emergency Department recidivism; and decrease overdose fatalities.
