Individuals are connected with the Transition Facilitator who conducts a strengths based assessment of the young person’s life then works with the client while incarcerated to help facilitate a smooth plan to the community that accounts for service needs and insures that the client follows through with any legal commitments he/she may have.   In a similar fashion, the Facilitator also works with individuals released from prison and returning to Stark County through the Community Linkage Program to ensure that people with ongoing mental health needs will be outreached and connected to the appropriate service.

  • Peer Recovery Support

Peer Recovery Support Specialists are people who have progressed in their own recovery from alcohol and other drug abuse and mental disorder and are willing to self-identify as a peer and work to assist other individuals in entering and sustaining recovery. Because of their life experience, these individuals have expertise that professional training cannot replicate. Stark County TASC Care Managers identify those interested people who we serve that could benefit from the Peer Recovery Support Specialists and make the linkage.   The service provided is a set of non-clinical, peer-based activities designed to engage, educate and support an individual successfully to make the life changes necessary to recover from disabling substance use disorder and/or mental illness conditions. A key element contributing to the value of this service is that Peer Recovery Support Specialists highlight their personal experience of lived experience of recovery.
