How We Help

NAVIGATE LIFELINE



Navigate Recovery LIFELINE Program  

Navigate Recovery Gwinnett is now offering Navigate LIFELINE, a new initiative collaborating with hospital Emergency Departments, Crisis Intervention Units and medical providers.  Navigate LIFELINE will connect opiate overdose (or high risk for overdose) and other addiction or alcohol related patients in the hospital and the Emergency Departments (ED) with Peer to Peer Recovery Support Coaches, every day 24/7.

The recovery coach will arrive within 30 minutes and provide a coaching session that will explore the patient’s options for treatment, detox, recovery housing, recovery centers, continued recovery coaching and meeting sites. During the session the recovery coach will ask if the patient would like to continue services and make plans for follow up check in the next day. All of those seen will be added to continued support services if they so choose.

In some cases, overdose survivors were participating in a treatment program prior to overdose.  Navigate LIFELINE coaches will try to reintroduce the survivor to their previous program.  This motivates the survivor towards a deeper commitment to recovery.  This is also an opportunity to introduce the survivor to additional recovery pathways if appropriate.

Navigate LIFELINE connects survivors with the support and resources they need to become well again. Those that accept the services ongoing after the visit to the ED or acute care will be followed throughout the year.
