During Q2 of 2021, the executive committee was able to award grants to the following recovery-oriented systems of care. Read more about how these organizations will be utilizing their ARCHway grant.

Parents of Addicted Loved Ones (PAL) – Phoenix, AZ

PAL is a national nonprofit that provides the evidence-based education parents need to encourage their loved one’s recovery without enabling their addiction. PAL also offers the peer-to-peer support that parents need to face the challenges of being a parent of a loved one struggling with an addictive disorder. Both the education and support are offered through PAL groups or meetings, which are held on a weekly basis across the country.

Hilljack House – St. Louis, MO

Recovery housing for an individual who was in need of financial assistance.

Nikki’s House – Warren, OH

Nikki’s House is a non-profit recovery housing organization that works to provide structured and stable recovery to women impacted by the disease of addiction. Nikki’s House utilized this grant to purchase food for women who are waiting for their food assistance to become available and for recreational purposes for the women in the house, such as the garden the women grow every year.

Charlotte Behavioral Health Care – Punta Gorda, FL

This grant was a result of ARCHway’s Golf Scramble/Tennis Mixer in Punta Gorda, FL. The grant given to CBHC in partnership with the Charlotte County Sheriff’s Office supported their Drug Addiction Recovery Initiative. This initiative allows for anyone with a substance use disorder to present themselves to the Sheriff’s Office at which time a Deputy will transport that individual to Charlotte Behavioral Healthcare. As a result of these fundraising efforts, their treatment costs are paid for.

Grace House Recovery Services – Glen Burnie, MD

Recovery housing for an individual who was in need of financial assistance.

Healing Transitions – Raleigh, NC

Healing Transitions provides services on demand to homeless, uninsured, and underserved adults with substance use disorders at no cost to the individual. These services include non-medical detoxification, overnight emergency shelter, and a long-term peer driven recovery program.  The long-term peer driven recovery program involves linkage and involvement with the larger recovery community, a recovery curriculum called Recovery Dynamics, peer support/accountability, employment readiness classes, budgeting, linkage to medical and mental health services, assistance with obtaining medications, recovery outreach, child and family reunification services, and case management to help with housing, employment, and involvement in the criminal/legal system.

Addiction is Real – Chesterfield, MO

Addiction is Real has created two virtual prevention tools to educate parents in drug prevention – the Hidden in Plain View virtual bedroom and the “Don’t Wait” prevention film.  This grant will help Addiction is Real take the next step towards creating widespread awareness of these tools and their importance. Wall clings or posters will be created with QR codes linking parents directly to both of these tools. These will be distributed to all pediatric offices within the Mercy Kids pediatric system, as well as other hospital pediatric offices in the St. Louis area.

Hanani House – St. Charles, MO

Hanani House provides recovery housing for women with the intent of growing to support both men and women in recovery from substance use disorder(s). One of their goals is to help these men and women develop positive sober support networks. They host several outreach events each year like the Ladies Outdoor Movie Night. This ARCHway grant will help fund their next co-ed Outdoor Movie Event, which will be held on July 24th. Recovery friendly events like this provide safe, supportive, and fun activities and support networks for those in recovery.

The LCADA Way – Lorain, OH

The LCADA Way will use this grant funding to increase access to telehealth services for their clients. This practice increased due to the COVID-19 pandemic, and it is a practice that has proven successful, so it will continue to be utilized for treatment and recovery services. These telehealth services will include groups and/or individual sessions. They will use this grant specifically within their woman’s department.

St. Kolbe Puckett Center for Healing – St. Joseph, MO

St. Kolbe-Puckett’s mission is centered on the three tenets for affecting change in the opioid epidemic. We provide rapid access to care while removing the barrier of cost in order to allow the affected individual to engage in treatment as soon as they are emotionally and physically ready. They are supported with their medication of choice to help optimize their path of recovery. We emphasize that recovery is an ongoing process, and thus our support is an open ended commitment to our patients which is focused on outcomes, rather than rigid treatment timelines. In addition to medication assisted treatment, we offer group and family recovery classes, counseling, and peer support services.

Regenerate Your Authentic Nature (RYAN) – Ft. Myers, FL

This ARCHway grant will go towards RYAN’s Prison Release Scholarship Fund. This fund provides financial assistance to women coming out of jail/prison who are looking for rehabilitation and housing.
