Telephone Recovery Support
Foundation for Recovery is currently offering Telephone Recovery Support (TRS) calls to pregnant women and women with children struggling with addiction and engaged in the criminal justice system in Southern Nevada. TRS is an innovative, peer-to-peer support service. Trained volunteers that are, in many cases, in recovery themselves, make weekly calls to “check in” and see how people are doing. Recoverees are offered support; encouragement and information about resources that may help them maintain their recovery.
The beauty is in the simplicity. TRS helps people stay in recovery. Sometimes just a phone call can make someone feel wanted, cared about and included. When making the call, the volunteer will feel rewarded when they have spoken with someone. They share in joys and sorrows, triumphs and setbacks. They have the satisfaction of giving back, of making a difference. It’s a classic win-win scenario.
The impact on our state has been immeasurable. We know that our calls help people maintain their recovery and get them back on track if a relapse occurs. When someone tells us they have relapsed, we don’t kick them out of the program; we keep calling them, checking in with them, seeing if they want help. When someone is down, that’s when he or she needs the most support. Through this service, Foundation for Recovery aims to offer an encouraging voice at a critical junction on the road to recovery.
