Threshold to Recovery

Threshold to Recovery specializes in socialization, peer support

Description: Three community designed peer support programs, Recovery in Community, Dee’s Pace and Penn North, make up the Threshold to Recovery project participating centers. Threshold sites are open during non-traditional hours, are staffed by professional and peer counselors, and provide a welcoming open door setting in which recovery is supported. Participants do not need to meet any qualifications to receive services.

History: In July of 2005, Baltimore Substance abuse Systems received an award from the Robert Wood Johnson Foundation’s Local Initiative Funding Partners program to coordinate enhanced recovery support services at three Threshold to Recovery centers. Funding received from the Robert Wood Johnson Foundation’s Local Initiative Funding Partners program has been matched by four Baltimore-based foundations. Those foundations include the Zanvyl and Isabelle Krieger Fund, the Annie E. Casey Foundation, the Abell Foundation, and the France-Merrick Foundation.

The projects present goals are to offer recovery support services in a welcoming environment to people at any stage of the recovery process. This includes people who are contemplating addiction treatment, those who are in treatment, and those who have completed a treatment program and seek on-going recovery support. The project also seeks to implement a barcoding system that will generate data as to the attendance of unduplicated numbers of participants.

• October of 2005 the project began its implementation of enhanced services with Penn North Neighborhood Center offering extended hours throughout the week.
• Project received a grant for $87,000 from the Center for Substance Abuse Prevention.
• The Maryland Governor’s Office of Crime Control and Prevention awarded the project a one year grant in the amount of $60,000.
• The Baltimore City Health Department awarded the project an ongoing annual award of $140,000.
• In May 2007 the project began implementation of barcoding system in an effort to obtain an unduplicated count of participants using Threshold services.
