Recovery Support

How It Works

Family Tree Relief Nursery’s Perf Support Team provides services or support in three areas as part of Addiction Recovery Team (ART):

A & D Outreach

A & D Outreach workers provide support for clients who are involved with child welfare and who have drug and alcohol allegations. Outreach workers are available to meet weekly with their clients in their home or in the community, introducing and modeling a recovery lifestyle. They may provide transportation, accompany them to meetings, appointments, court appearances, and make referrals to various community groups and agencies.

Outreach Expansion

The Outreach Expansion worker supports families affected by substance abuse and connects them with treatment and related resources. The family does not have to have an open DHS case. Indicators of A & D issues need to be present. This service is a four week program that utilizes Differential Response process.

Peer Mentors

Family Tree Relief Nursery has dedicated team of Peer Support Specialists often called into the profession from their own experiences

Many people experiencing recovery at any stage can feel helpless and often their social circle includes friends and family still in active drug or alcohol use. Without having a positive role model that is living a successful life in recovery, maintaining sobriety can be that much more difficult. A recovery mentor is someone who has lived similar experiences, walked a similar path, and can relate to someone beginning a recovery journey.

“I cannot imagine how much harder it would have been if we would have continued on the path we were on and I don’t think we would have our son… I owe my whole recovery to Crystal at Family Tree… Knowing that she had gone through it too made me want to listen to her, she’s a life saver.”
