Wherever we are, we want to reach Just 1 More person. At the hospital, homes, syringe exchange, or out on the streets, ART will help anyone find the resources they need to get into recovery. We help connect you to residential treatment, MOUD, IOP, counseling, transportation, clothing, housing, etc. Our goal is to meet the people where they are in order to help when they are ready.
Quick Response Team (QRT)
Our QRT responds to calls from Clark Regional Medical Center when substance use is suspected in any capacity. A Peer Support Specialist will speak to individuals about resources and recovery. To date, we have a 65% success rate of getting individuals into some type of treatment program. The team also visits individuals who have called for emergency assistance for an overdose.
- On-call 24/7 in all areas of Clark Regional Medical Center when substance use is suspected.
- Conduct home visits for those who have called for emergency assistance in regards to an overdose.
- Distribute Narcan to inmates that are released from local detention centers.
Harm Reduction Program
PSS are available at the Clark County Health Department’s Harm Reduction Syringe Exchange Program (HRSEP) every Friday 12pm – 4pm. We offer resources, Narcan, and hygiene kits for all participants. At these and other outreach moments, ART helps individuals find recovery resources including residential treatment, MOUD, IOP, counseling, transportation, and more.
First Day Forward
Our Peer Support Professionals pair with incarcerated individuals with Substance Use Disorder. Together, they create an individualised pre- and post-release case plan. The plan is implemented during their time in jail and continues upon release.
The PSP helps them obtain IDs, medical cards, and more, while keeping them focused on the solution instead of the problem.
The First Day Forward program gives incarcerated individuals a chance to be on level ground when they get out. People who complete First Day Forward leave the jail with a $50 gift card, a plan of what to do next, a ride to treatment if they need it, and a Peer Support Professional to help them in the next part of their journeys.
Our Peer Support Professional are going through youth specific training and developing a youth mentorship program for Clark County. We are working with various community partners, including the Phoenix Academy and GRC High School, to support and heal kids and teens experiencing Substance Use Disorder themselves or in their families.
Transport to Detox and Rehab Treatments
Finding a ride shouldn’t be a barrier to recovery. We help our peers with safe and reliable transportation to medical detox, residential treatment, Medication for Opioid Use Disorder (MOUD), intensive outpatient services, and Behavioral Health appointments.
Referrals to Community Partners
The path to recovery looks different for everyone. There are many local and national organizations ready to help you along the way. We work with many of these organizations and can give you a head start in choosing the right ones. We will connect you and your family to medical treatment facilities, counseling, community assistance, and more.
