Embark/PCA Telephone Recovery Support

 The beauty is in the simplicity. TRS helps people stay  in recovery. Sometimes just a phone call can make someone feel wanted,  cared about and included. Dare, we say “loved”. When making the call,  the volunteer will feel rewarded when they have spoken with someone.  They share in joys and sorrows, triumphs and setbacks. They have the  satisfaction of giving back, of making a difference. It’s a classic  win-win scenario.

Give And/Or Receive Recovery Support

TRS is an innovative, peer-to-peer support service.  Trained volunteers that are, in many cases, in recovery themselves, make  weekly calls to “check in” and see how people are doing. Recoverees are  offered support; encouragement and information about resources that may  help them maintain their recovery.

 The impact on our state can be immeasurable. We know that our calls  help people maintain their recovery and get them back on track if a  relapse occurs. When someone tells us they have relapsed, we don’t kick  them out of the program; we keep calling them, checking in with them,  seeing if they want help. When someone is down, that’s when he or she  needs the most support. Embark/PCA may be the only encouraging voice heard  at a critical junction on the road of their recovery. TRS calls are made at all 6 counties throughout Colorado with the help of our regional partners.
