Parent Support Network’s Hope Recovery C.O.R.E. (Community Outreach Response Efforts) Team is a mobile outreach program that operates statewide throughout Rhode Island, meeting individuals “where they are at” both physically and fundamentally.
The CORE Team employs dually certified Peer Recovery Specialists/Community Health Workers that provide direct recovery and harm reduction supports to at-risk individuals within the community.
When a region within Rhode Island is experiencing higher than normal overdose rates, the CORE Team deploys outreach workers to target the affected region and provides recovery and harm reduction support (such as Naloxone distribution, needle exchange services and fentanyl test strips, etc.) to at-risk individuals as well as community organizations, businesses, and home delivery services. The CORE Team helps educate communities across the state on overdose awareness and prevention through Naloxone (Narcan) trainings and Harm Reduction practices.
The CORE Team provides support and referrals to inpatient treatment, medication assisted treatment, recovery housing, self-help-based support, Peer Recovery Support, HIV/HCV testing, and basic needs assistance.
