DPP is the sole provider of case management and recovery support for individuals in residential, outpatient, and jail-based substance abuse programs. The goal is to break the cycle of repeated engagements with treatment programs (and the justice system) by connecting clients with the support and assistance they need. As the “system navigator” in Prince George’s County, DPP helps with basic needs (birth certificates, IDs, food, clothing, toiletries), health and mental health, housing, employment, and social services – creating a holistic support system and establishing relationships within the recovery community that will foster a healthy lifestyle. When the pandemic began, the referral/intake process shifted to phone and email, and needs escalated – for grocery gift cards, prescriptions, clothing, telephone service to maintain contact with DPP, healthcare providers, parole officers, and potential employers. During COVID-19, this vital, hard work is just ... harder.
