How Clear Brook Foundation Can Help…

Assisting members of the community that are either currently, or have been, impacted by drug and alcohol addiction

Established in 1998, the goal of the Clear Brook Foundation is to assist both individuals currently in active addiction, as well as those already engaged in their recovery.  We work to facilitate a welcoming environment where people from all walks of life can learn about and better understand the effects addiction has on not only the individual, but also on the family members and loved ones of the addicted individual.

Clear Brook Foundation's Three Continuum of Care Modalities

1.      “Recovery Connect”

The Clear Brook Foundation has identified a need in our community to provide a service that performs crisis triage by offering free assessments and referrals to appropriate levels of care in the addiction treatment field.

The Foundation operates our Recovery Connect center out of our Scranton, Pennsylvania location.

It Is available to addiction populations and their families.  The center conducts evaluations and then refers to the appropriate level of care and provider.  There is an open-door policy within a professional environment that allows for response to the opioid crisis in a timely fashion.

Recovery Connect is a community outreach by the Foundation for communities unserved and underserved in the delivery of this type of care.  The idea is to fill in gaps that have been identified in the overall delivery of substance abuse treatment.

The Recovery Connect center also refer to our other two programs.  This allows us to help the individual looking for help to find treatment and at the same time to direct the families into our second modality, Families Helping Families.  The third modality, The Hall, can be used by individuals who are discharged from treatment and are looking for AA meetings and self help support groups to attend.

 

2. “Families Helping Families”

The Clear Brook Foundation’s Families Helping Families program holds weekly meetings at seven different locations throughout Pennsylvania. These meetings are free of charge and open to the public. They provide attendees with a forum where they have the opportunity to learn about drug and alcohol addiction from trained professionals, as well as to interact with other people who are facing the same kind of issues that they are dealing with. They also provide a valuable resource to assist members of the community in gaining a knowledge base for confronting all of the issues that accompany addiction, some of which are often overlooked. The underlying basis of the Clear Brook Foundation’s beliefs involve an emphasis on mind, body, and the spirit as it relates to dealing with drug addiction.

Families Helping Families is a grass roots community focused program which is supported by the attendees of the communities the meetings are located in. The intention is for Families Helping Families to use our Recovery Connect program for family members seeking help for a loved one. Families Helping Families also refers to The Hall those family members who are looking for Al Anon or other self help types of meetings.

 

3. “The Hall”

The Hall is located in the same building in Scranton as the Recovery Connect center. The Hall portion is a large separate part of the building which offers meeting space free of charge to AA and other self help groups. Numerous meetings utilize The Hall each day.  Groups interested in establishing a meeting are encouraged to contact the Clear Brook Foundation for availability. Attendance at The Hall has grown to upwards of 1000 people weekly.

As do the other two modalities,The Hall acts as a referral source to both Recovery Connect and Families Helping Families. While the three modalities cover distinct types of care, they are designed to be interactive. This allows the Clear Brook Foundation to quickly provide help and direction to both individuals and families seeking help and guidance. Instead of directing people to different service organizations for specific levels of care and needs, all of our three modalities act as ingress and egress points to each other.
