RAS-Col works to improve prevention, treatment and recovery from substance use disorder in Northwest Colorado. We work toward diminishing stigma, prevention and treatment for substance use disorders.
The list below shows the work we will be doing in the future to achieve our mission.
Here are some of the items we will accomplish:
for people in the region to detox and treatment in Denver, Frisco, and Grand Junction
a youth prevention specialist to work with school-aged youth on healthy coping strategies
a marketing initiative to decrease stigma and improve knowledge about treatment options in the region
county commissioners, town, and state leaders to build momentum and sustainable funding for this project
a recovery-friendly workplace toolkit specific to our region
another grant to fund evidence-based treatment for methamphetamine use disorder
