The Lifeline Peer Project was established to reduce the stigma related to the disease of addiction and increase community support for policies that provide for treatment and recovery services.
Project approaches include:
•Establishment of evidence-based addiction and recovery programs
•Educational presentations for civic groups, faith based organizations, and community leaders to increase understanding of the disease of addiction and support for recovery strategies.
There are 10 Project Lifeline Peer Coordinators across the state, each housed in a substance abuse prevention coalition.
For more information, contact a Lifeline Representative near you.
