Hope Creates (St. Louis, MO)
Congratulations to Hope Creates, whose grant funds were used to support their “Make Your M.A.R.C.” program in collaboration with St. Louis Classical Guitar and the Child and Family Empowerment Center.
This is a nine-week Arts and Healing program for youth who are the children of parents in recovery from substance use disorder. The program is designed to provide students who are at great risk for SUD with a multidisciplinary arts healing experience. Participants not only learn to paint/draw, but they also learn guitar/drums in a group setting, decorate a guitar of their own, and write their artistic statement. Feelings of joy, accomplishment, and pride are all associated with successful art and music making, and these positive emotions have a deep impact in preventing SUD and supporting healing.

Healing Transitions (Raleigh, NC)
A big congratulations to the men’s and women’s long-term recovery program at Healing Transitions! Their long-term recovery program supports homeless, uninsured, and underserved adults with alcohol or other drug addiction. They provide services at no cost to participants and offer a peer-driven model, inspired by The Healing Place in Louisville, KY.
This long-term program comprises three distinct stages: (1) a motivation and engagement stage for those expressing interest in joining the program, (2) an educational stage, and (3) a transitional stage. During the motivation and engagement stage, as well as the education stage, participants are guided through the Recovery Dynamics curriculum. This curriculum encompasses various aspects of recovery, equipping individuals with the necessary tools and knowledge to overcome addiction. Additionally, peer accountability, shared responsibilities in managing the facility, and job readiness training in collaboration with Wake Tech Community College are integral components of the education stage. The transitional stage of the program provides participants with opportunities to serve as peer mentors, while also assisting them in securing employment and transitioning into recovery housing. Furthermore, an essential aspect of the program involves linking individuals to the larger recovery community, fostering a supportive network, and facilitating ongoing recovery efforts. To represent a participant graduating from our long-term program, we do monthly Silver Chip Ceremonies to serve as an occasion to acknowledge and honor participants’ achievements. A Silver Chip is presented to the participants during these ceremonies to signify their dedication and progress in their recovery journey.
