Long-term engagement in a treatment program is essential for ongoing recovery from addiction. We have partnered with MAP to provide a PRSS support program that offers personalized ongoing care for clients who are stepping down into the next phase of their treatment program.
What is the MAP PRSS Program?
The PRSS (Peer Recovery Support Specialist) program helps clients maintain their sobriety by providing personalized peer support through ongoing meaningful relationships with certified Recovery Support Specialists. Facilitated by MAP (Measure Act Prevent), a third-party provider based in Austin, TX, clients receive PRSS when they transition out of detox and residential treatment or are admitted into IOP, sober living, or discharged home from residential rehab or detox.
The MAP PRSS program is offered for 90 days but it can be utilized for a year or longer depending on the client’s need and risk.
What Recovery Support Services Do Clients Receive?
With the MAP PRSS program, clients receive personalized recovery support services that are tailored to meet their individual needs. These services are facilitated by a certified Peer Recovery Support Specialist and can be adjusted as necessary to fit the client’s changing needs. MAP PRSS services include:
|An initial profile for treatment:
One week prior to the client’s discharge, a MAP professional will connect with the client in-person or over the phone to assess treatment needs and develop a personalized profile for continued care.
|Weekly and bi-weekly support sessions:
During the first 90 days of the program, clients receive four sessions with their Peer Recovery Support Specialist each month. After the initial 90 days, clients meet with their Peer Recovery Support Specialist on a bi-weekly basis, or as needed depending on risk level.
|24/7 access to live recovery support services:
Clients and “Primary Support” loved ones may also call into MAP any day or time to receive support when it is needed most.
“Primary Support” loved ones also receive two sessions per month with MAP. When the client completes the PRSS program, MAP will facilitate a family phone call to ensure a smooth transition.
