Our Anchor ED program dispatches specially trained recovery coaches to emergency departments statewide to respond to overdose survivors.  We’ll share our experiences and guidance on creating a program like this in your community, including:

  • Training for Peer Recovery Specialist
  • Developing a collaborative relationship with hospitals
  • Collecting and reporting data
