AnchorED

AnchorED is a special program in Rhode Island emergency rooms that connects people admitted for opioid related reasons with trained recovery coaches. Prior to being released, a peer recovery coach meets with the patient to introduce them to recovery supports and resources that will help keep them on the road to recovery. Outreach includes:

  • Linking individuals to treatment and recovery resources
  • Providing education on overdose, prevention and on obtaining Naloxone, a drug that reverses the effects of an opioid overdose when administered
  • Providing additional resources to individuals and family members
  • Contacting the individual after they are released from the ED with a follow-up phone call
