OUR INITIATIVES

FAMILY SERVICES

FOSTER CARE
Our Foster Care program serves child-welfare youth 0-21 years old who have been removed from their homes. These youth have a history of neglect, abuse, truancy, and often behavioral and substance abuse issues. Our program utilizes nurturing, caring, and supportive foster parents to provide a safe, stable, and supportive environment for our foster youth.

HEALTH SERVICES

BEHAVIORAL HEALTH
High-quality mental health services that focus on improving lives, reducing symptoms, and improving self-management of the clients we serve. Services are targeted for eligible individuals and families experiencing mental health issues or concerns.

COMMUNITY HEALTH ADVOCACY AND ACCESS
Our specialists work in a typical setting to inform and increase access to healthcare for disabled and other underserved populations.

JOB SERVICES

EMPLOYMENT ASSISTANCE
Our Employment Support Services Program [ESSP] assists individuals in recovery from a Substance Use Disorder [SUD] in obtaining and maintaining gainful employment. Services to our clients include resume writing, mock interviews, employment preparation training, case management, and advocacy. In addition, ESSP staff work directly with employers to ensure the equitable treatment of employees who are in recovery from SUDs. Services to employers include employee placement, employer support, education and training, policy analysis, and disability compliance.

DRUG AND ALCOHOL SERVICES

DIVERSION
Our Diversion Program utilizes an evidence-based curriculum to divert students away from the school-to-prison pipeline through programming that supports a drug-free lifestyle and removes barriers to academic success. This program is designed to support academic achievement by keeping youth in school and teaching them skills that will support a drug-free lifestyle while eliminating obstacles to a path of success. The Diversion Program provides student services as well as parent engagement and referrals.

PREVENTION
We offer quality prevention services to youth, adults, and families throughout Allegheny County to reduce early initiation of substance abuse and improve decision-making skills. The services are within the community and school setting. Services include drug and alcohol pre-screenings and referrals, individual sessions and follow-ups, small groups, classroom presentations, alternative activities, and alcohol, tobacco, and other drugs [ATOD] information dissemination.

INTERVENTION
Our prevention services are offered to groups to address risky behavior associated with substance abuse. Individuals receive supportive services related to accessing intervention and treatment. Outreach efforts heighten awareness of substance abuse and risk factors.

TREATMENT
TRY is licensed to provide D|A outpatient treatment services. The services include drug and alcohol level of care assessments, outpatient and intensive outpatient treatment through individual and group counseling. The sessions are confidential, culturally sensitive, and are intended for underserved and high priority populations.

RECOVERY
Recovery support services are implemented by Certified Recovery Specialists [CRS] who work with individuals struggling with substance abuse on a peer-to-peer basis. CRS services are intended to extend and enhance the drug and alcohol treatment continuum by helping to prevent relapse and promote sustained recovery. If relapse occurs, our services help to minimize the negative effects through early intervention and, where appropriate, timely referral to treatment. Individuals involved with Child Youth Services [CYS], the criminal justice system, and those reentering the community after release from prison may also benefit from this service.
