Three regional hospital organizations have been awarded $3 million to complete recovery networks so they can apply for comprehensive addiction recovery networks status.

This donation will help establish comprehensive addiction recovery networks through partnership with local hospitals. Comprehensive addiction recovery networks use evidence-based treatment to ensure patients enter and maintain recovery from substance abuse.  

The money distributed to Gov. Holcomb’s Next Level Recovery initiative will help launch six comprehensive addiction recovery networks across the state over the next two years, according to the press release.

Gov. Holcomb’s Next Level Recovery initiative focuses on prevention and treatment of substance use disorders, according to the release. The initiative seeks to provide access to resources for doctors, emergency personnel, community leaders and individuals dealing with substance abuse. 

Three regional partnerships – in northern, central and southern Indiana – were awarded grants to support the completion of their recovery networks, according to the release. The partnerships include Regional Health Systems in Merrillville, the Health and Hospital Corporation of Marion County, Eskenazi Health in Indianapolis and Community Mental Health Center in Lawrenceburg.

According to state standards, each organization must offer all aspects of substance use care, such as peer support services, recovery residences and family support services.
