Ridgeview Cares is a community-based, non-residential substance abuse treatment service that is funded through Ryan White Part B. Programming is designed to address and stabilize substance abuse issues so that a person is able to engage in and maintain participation in HIV medical care.
Our harm reduction approach includes a 12 week curriculum that addresses early recovery skills, relapse prevention, and relevant HIV topics. Core components of programming also include weekly groups and individual substance abuse and recovery coaching. We can provide assistance with transportation to substance abuse treatment and coordination of servcies with identified Medical Case Manager.
Ridgeview Cares uses evidenced-based interventions that allow individuals to gain knowledge, learn new skills, and receive support as they work toward achieving their own individualized plan for recovery.
How is eligibility determined?
Individuals must be 18 years of age or older and have been identified as needing alcohol / drug treatment or are experiencing co-occurring (Alcohol and Drug / Mental Illness) challenges and living with HIV / AIDS. Services may also be delivered to non-HIV family members.
