Recovery to Work Program
Recovery to Work program is an employment program that combines vocational rehabilitation services with alcohol, drug addiction and mental health services for four priority populations in the state of Ohio. The priority populations served by our Recovery to Work project are as follows:
1. Individuals addicted to opiates,
2. Individuals with a mental illness and/or addiction involved with the criminal justice system,
3. Veterans with a mental illness and/or addiction, and
4. Individuals with severe and persistent mental illness.
The primary purpose of the Opportunities for Ohioans with Disabilities (OOD; ood.ohio.gov) dollars being matched for the Recovery to Work program is to provide vocational rehabilitation services to individuals to remove barriers and provide supports necessary for self-sufficiency and employment opportunities. These services can include, but are not limited to: Vocational rehabilitation services; Addiction and/or mental health treatment services (when not otherwise funded); Mental health and/or MAT pharmaceuticals (when not otherwise funded); Time limited residential treatment and/or halfway house support (when not otherwise funded).
