We work with agencies and jurisdictions to enhance the coordination of recovery support services. We take a holistic view of recovery supports by promoting recovery, resilience, and wellness for individuals with mental and substance use disorders. We help jurisdictions develop policies and practices to enhance treatment and develop systems to provide basic needs to individuals in recovery, including housing, employment, health literacy, education, wellness, transportation, and childcare. Our work promotes the integration of individuals with lived experience, person-centered recovery planning, and trauma-informed care.

Policy Research, Inc. operated SAMHSA’s Statewide Family and Consumer Networks (FCN) TA Center from 2009-2014. The FCN TA Center provided TA and support to grantees of the Statewide Family and Consumer Networks grant programs (SFN/SCN). Grantees of each program received three-year grants from SAMHSA to develop the infrastructure and business models needed to serve as their state’s resource and advocacy organization for families and their children (SFN) and for adults (SCN) with mental illness.
