Firelands Regional Medical Center Counseling & Recovery Services Receives Funding to Reduce Substance Abuse

Firelands Regional Medical Center Counseling and Recovery Services was recently awarded a $457,600 grant to help identify substance abuse problems and begin intervention in an inpatient and primary care setting.

The Screening, Brief Intervention and Referral to Treatment (SBIRT) grant, awarded by Ohio Mental Health and Addiction Services will help Firelands Counseling and Recovery Services staff identify patients who are at risk for or who have underlying substance abuse problems that might otherwise go unnoticed and untreated. Intervention provided through this project focuses on increasing insight and awareness regarding substance use and motivation to change. In addition to identifying patients who may be at risk or who have underlying substance abuse problems, Firelands Counseling and Recovery Services will be providing outpatient substance abuse treatment for adults in Erie County, along with continuing its counseling and recovery services for youth. This grant will initially focus on Erie County with potential to expand to additional counties served by Firelands Counseling and Recovery Services. Firelands Counseling and Recovery Services was one of only two organizations in the State of Ohio to be chosen to partner with Ohio Mental Health and Addiction Services on this project.
