As we look back on 2022, we reflect on the impact that our Recovery Resources' employees, board members and philanthropic supporters had in serving our community. We reflect as well on the changes to our community and how we deliver care and services in the post-COVID world.
Recovery Resources' employees provided care and services to more than 4,000 community members. Our medical, clinical treatment, case management and peer support colleagues supported individuals and their families along the path to recovery. Our Employment and Vocational Rehabilitation teams helped individuals prepare for, find and sustain employment. Our Women’s recovery home staff and other residents celebrated individuals as they graduated and moved to permanent housing.
In response to COVID-19, Recovery Resources and the community created new opportunities for how we deliver care and services. As we continue to advance after the end of the public health emergency, we continue to offer both virtual and in-person treatment and group visits based on the needs and access of our clients. We have also transitioned back into the classrooms and community access points through the work of our Prevention Team and Employment and Vocational Rehabilitation teams.
