Placer County Community Members Access Needed Resources

August 1, 2016

The nonprofit Community Recovery Resources (CoRR) will provide enhanced services to people experiencing substance use disorders and mental health issues, supported by Kaiser Permanente Northern California Community Benefit Programs. This funding enables CoRR to help these community members navigate complex systems of care to access employment, mental health, housing, access primary care, and basic needs services. Primary focus is on connecting individuals and their families with healthcare coverage, and healthcare services including primary care and behavioral health services.

“By identifying individuals and families and helping them to access necessary and supportive services, people experience improved health and self-sufficiency, and the community benefits from reduced healthcare costs and improved public health”, said Ariel Lovett, Deputy Director at CoRR.

The Navigator project builds on community partnerships, as people are connected with other public, private, and nonprofit services including employment development, health coverage enrollment, primary care, domestic violence resources, or food banks. These partnerships support CoRR’s whole-person approach in treating substance use disorders and associated behavioral issues, with a primary focus on the family system. CoRR’s other services include residential treatment for men, women, and women with children, outpatient treatment for adults and teens, mental health services, transitional supportive housing, and ancillary supports such as parenting, drug screening, and child development.

Community Recovery Resources is a nonprofit organization with a mission to support the communities we serve with a full spectrum of wellness-focused programs to reduce the social, health and economic impact on families and children from all types of substance abuse and behavioral health issues.
