CCAR’s Emergency Department Program

Launched in 2017, CCAR’s Emergency Department Program currently operates in 22 Connecticut hospital Emergency Departments (EDs). Our Recovery Coaches are skilled professionals who meet with patients admitted to an ED as a result of an opioid overdose or other drug or alcohol related crisis. They support patients, family members, and hospital personnel and have demonstrated effectiveness in linking Emergency Department patients with treatment and community based recovery resources.
