Hello, CRS from a Ryan White Funded FQHC with integrated services in Philadelphia, PA.

Recommended Posts

Hello all, 

I am a Certified Peer Recovery Specialist with 7+ years in recovery from heroin, and all other substances. I began using at age 11, and it continued for out the next 28 years of my life. I couldn't stop till I was ready to do some work around ending my cycle of abusive relationships. Dec. 23, 2013 I met a female doctor who spent three hours talking with me, and that night I left my last abusive relationship and never took another drug. I'm here because I work in a Federally Qualified Health Center in Center City Philadelphia, PA, with integrated services. We serve a huge low-income and homeless population, and we are often targeted by individuals who do not have oud, some do not have sud either. I am bothered by this because I became a CRS to help those still suffering from the disease of addiction. I have sent the link to the providers I work with to register for this forum. I work closely with them, as they are primary care providers with no substance use knowledge, they are only given one 8 hour training on how to prescribed bup.
