Recovery Coaches in the Emergency Department
About the Program
The Recovery Coaches in the Emergency Department (RCED) program was established in 2018, with the goal of serving individuals presenting with substance use disorders in the Emergency Department. This program was created by establishing partnerships between the Vermont Department of Health, Vermont’s Recovery Centers, and their local hospitals. As of 2021, Recovery Coaches are now working in hospitals throughout the entire state of Vermont, providing resources and support to those in crisis when they need it most. Recovery Vermont is proud to provide these coaches their initial and ongoing training.
