Saint Louis University’s (SLU) Department in Family & Community Medicine was awarded an HRSA grant in August 2019. This grant allows increased partnering with ARCHway as a way to expand the training of family therapy graduate students in the area of substance use disorders.
Certified peer specialists will be taking part in graduate level counseling classes as part of this endeavor. SLU students and classes provide master level training in counseling skills for peer specialists. ARCHway peers are excited to share their personal experiences with substance use disorder and their expertise from working in the field with these graduate students and faculty instructors. Together, we can help those struggling with substance use and mental health disorders recover and thrive going forward.
Affordable counseling is available for individuals, couples and families through SLU’s Center for Counseling and Family Services. We know that substance use and mental health disorders can disrupt relationships and families in addition to their impact on the individual. A safe place to talk with guidance from a professional can provide support on the path of recovery.
