MOMSTELL, Clear Concepts and a local pastor collaborated together to form, the Pastoral Recovery Education Program (PREP).Jun 01 2014
MOMSTELL Partnership Program:Sponsored by a grant from the Behavioral Health Alliance of Rural Pennsylvania (BHARP )
After realizing the gap between the recovery and faith based community, MOMSTELL, Clear Concepts and a local pastor collaborated together to form, the Pastoral Recovery Education Program (PREP). The PREP program is designed to provide education, resources and opportunities for faith leaders and other interested community members to interact with those impacted by substance abuse/mental health.
The Central Pennsylvania Life Recovery Ministry emerged from the PREP program and is still active today. The program is supported by the Behavioral Health Alliance of Rural Pennsylvania (BHARP) and has been in operation since September 2011. The program is foundationally based on the core competencies published by the Substance Abuse and Mental Health Services Administration (SAMHSA) in 2004 as the Core Competencies for Clergy and Other Pastoral Ministers in Addressing Alcohol and Drug Dependence and the Impact on Family Members.
MOMSTELL Partnered with Optimum Health Services to create a Survey to improve improve their treatment systemJun 01 2014
Please take a few minutes to take this survey to help improve treatment. They need your valuable input! Lets flood this provider with surveys so they can improve their system!!! We are pleased to announce that MOMSTELL has entered into a unique and exciting relationship with Optum®, a leading information and technology-enabled health services business, to provide our opinions, thoughts, concerns, complaints and recommendations about the treatment of substance use ...disorders through the attached survey. Link to the survey: https://optumsurveys.co1.qualtrics.com/SE/?SID=SV_2nQwyv0tkWA0Dl3
Optum® developed this survey in collaboration with MOMSTELL to help identify and develop the most effective treatments for addictions by learning from consumers and families what's important to them. Once we have gathered responses from consumers and families, Optum® will work with researchers and providers to identify areas of consensus and/or gaps in care based on the survey results. All responses and emails are confidential and will not be connected to you in any way. Please note that the survey does not ask respondents to submit any personal identifying information and we would not share your emails with any other organization or company. Optum® is taking the time to learn from us, and they want to know what our treatment needs are today. Our hope is that, sometime in the future, we can share this information across the country with other health plans and treatment providers. The ultimate goal of this survey is to work together to come up with answers that make a difference in quality and access to care and lead to the best possible outcomes. We want to help our members get better and go on to healthy lives.
I urge you to please complete this survey in a timely fashion so we can provide a true and meaningful picture of current treatment and our list of needs, from those of us who care the most. There are three levels of surveys:
1) for an individual who has struggled with substance use disorders;
2) for the family members of someone with a substance use disorder; and,
3) for anyone who has lost a loved one to an addiction.
Finally, feel free to distribute this survey to others who you believe may want to share their opinions through June 2014. Thank you in advance for your help with this as we really appreciate your input.
