Union County STAR Program
The Union County STAR Program provides non-clinical case management and peer recovery support to Union County residents over the age of 18, who have a current or previous history with opioid or stimulant use disorder. The goal of the STAR program is to help individuals sustain long term recovery by increasing their recovery capital. The team assists with common obstacles related to recovery such as homelessness, incarceration, legal issues, employment, education, transportation, healthcare, documentation and more.
The peer recovery support specialist assists participants in navigating early recovery, based on their own lived experiences. They collaborate with the participant and the case manager to accomplish measurable recovery goals and develop a recovery plan.
The STAR team has a wonderful relationship with treatment facilities across the state which allows participants to gain access to treatment in the form of detox, rehab, intensive outpatient services, medication-assisted treatment, and more.
If you or a loved one is a Union County resident over the age of 18, has a current or previous history with opioid use or stimulant use disorder, and would like to be connected to peer recovery support and resources available in the community, please contact us at:
