USARA provides Telephone Recovery Support (TRS), an innovative peer to peer recovery support service. Volunteers will be trained to call and speak with people in recovery from alcohol and/or drug addiction to “check in” and see how they are doing each week. The volunteer will be trained to establish short term goals with the recoveree, how and when to provide additional resources and be a solid voice of encouragement in an effort to assist them to maintain a strong and focused recovery.
If you are interested in becoming a TRS Volunteer you must have a minimum of six (6) months of continuous recovery. Please click here for additional information: TRS Volunteer Roles & Requirements.
Thursdays 6-9 PM:
Session 1 (1.5hrs)
During this session the TRS Volunteer will cover the following:
BREAK: 15 minutes
Session 2 ( 1.5hrs)
Upon completion of USARA TRS Volunteer Phone Training, you will be scheduled to work as TRS professional volunteer in assisting another person in recovery to achieve goals and truly understand the power of positive recovery.
After three months the USARA TRS Volunteer will be issued a Certificate of Completion that will recognize your personal achievement in completing the phone training and enhancing your personal and professional skills to further your own opportunities in the workforce.
