Individualized recovery plans will include a relapse prevention plan and help participants to build a supportive network for participants and their family to encourage and reinforce program participants recovery and plans for reunification when desired and applicable. Coaches will support and provide resources to assist women in scheduling continuing care services for program participants and her children in order to encourage maximum attendance while enrolled in the Women’s Success Program. and coordinated support linkages with other agencies to assist with housing, employment, and legal issues for the goal of sustained recovery and reducing recidivism.

Participants will also be encouraged to participate in hosting activities for their peers where family members may participate.

- Telephone Recovery Support: Telephone Recovery Support (TRS) offers free, weekly telephone calls to people in recovery to “check in” and see they’re doing. Calls are made by trained coaches who are in recovery themselves. Participants who sign up for this service will be given support and encouragement as well as information about community resources that can help individuals maintain their recovery and rebuild their life. TRS helps reduce relapse and enhances the recovery experience for recoverees as well as the volunteer making the calls.
