Our Commitment for a

Our Commitment for a Healthy Community Prevention Partnership Our impact in 2008-2009 Over 20,449 (11,283 youth and 9,166 adults) individuals were served by the Prevention Partnership over the past year. Between July 2008 and June 2009, the Prevention Partnership provided over 140 educational workshops for parents, teachers, law enforcement, the faith community and the community at large. Our dynamic presentations elevate awareness of local substance abuse trends among youth and young adults, provide education on signs and symptoms of abuse and offer immediate resource information. The Mesa Prevention Alliance is a community-based coalition that was established in July 2008 by the Community Bridges Prevention Partnership. As we celebrate the undertakings of this first year, the Alliance is now focused on: Addressing youth substance use through education, prevention and healthy alternatives. In one year, the Mesa Prevention Alliance began conducting a comprehensive community needs assessment facilitating 13 focus groups, nine community forums, and concentrated 4,633 staff hours on interviewing, researching and collaborating in Mesa to create a strong prevention plan for the city’s youth and families. With over 50 registered coalition members representing 13 community sectors*, the coalition will focus on two overarching goals in the upcoming 2009-2010 fiscal year: 1. Increase and strengthen collaboration among community groups and organizations. 2. Increase awareness of youth substance use in Mesa. “Healthy communities refers to an environment where people come together to make their community better for themselves, their family, their friends, their neighbors, and others. It fosters an environment that creates ongoing dialogue, generates leadership opportunities for all, embraces diversity, connects people and resources, fosters a sense of community, and shapes its future.” Center for Substance Abuse Prevention (CSAP), 2009 *Schools ■ Hospitals ■ Media ■ Private Health Organizations ■ Businesses / Financial Institutions ■ Community Colleges / Universities ■ Residents ■ Primary Care ■ Faith Community ■ City / Tribal Government ■ Law Enforcement ■ Nonprofits ■ Local Civic / Ethnic / Neighborhood Groups

Crisis Stabilization services at East Valley Addiction Recovery Center (EVARC) and Central City Addiction Recovery Center (CCARC) provide emergency crisis intervention. Our program offers medically monitored stabilization, triage, evaluation, assessment, and transitional services to individuals who are experiencing a substance or co-morbid related crisis (acute withdrawal, seizures, DT’s, convulsions, drug-induced psychosis, overdose, etc.). This service provides relief for hospital emergency rooms and emergency psychiatric centers when an individual’s primary issue is related to substance abuse. All patients receive a brief assessment based on the American Society of Addiction Medicine (ASAM) criteria to ensure that patients are immediately transitioned to the most appropriate level of care.

Community Bridges physicians use medical procedures and protocols nationally recognized as “Best Practice” approaches for medical detoxification. These medical protocols are directed by licensed medical practitioners and supported by our clinical team of Registered Nurses (RN’s), behavioral health technicians, peer support specialists and transition coordinators. Our RN’s and transition coordinators work closely with the medical practitioner and other professional and social supports in developing a comprehensive discharge plan that will take into account all of the dimensions of the American Society of Addiction Medicine. We continually monitor admission rates, bed utilization, access to care timelines, recidivism rates, and the general demographic make-up of our patients to ensure that the most efficient and clinically appropriate care is provided. 9
