ROSE Project begins peer recovery services for families in home visiting

The Coalition now offers peer recovery services to moms enrolled in home visiting programs, emphasizing a team approach to best meet the needs of pregnant and parenting women with current or a history of substance use. The ROSE Project launched in June 2021, through funding from the Florida Department of Health and the Overdose Data to Action grant, and allows the Coalition to pair a peer specialist  with moms  to complement the services they are already receiving and assist with the recovery process.

ROSE stands for Recovery Obtained Through Strength and Empowerment and is focused on offering home, support and advocacy for women seeking recovery through resilience and ongoing wellness, while ensuring they have the skills needed to nurture and care for their children.

Services include:

  • One-on-one support from a Recovery Peer Specialist
  • Support groups and life skills courses
  • Multiple pathways to recovery
  • Goal planning
  • Recovery wellness plan for long-term care

The team includes a program manager and three recovery peer specialists, housed under the umbrella of the Azalea Project, the Coalition’s long-running initiative focused on breaking the cycle of substance use and preventing substance-exposed newborns across the lifespan.

ROSE services are available to pregnant and postpartum mothers who reside in Duval County and are actively using substances or in recovery and enrolled in a Coalition home visiting program. To refer a mom to services, click here.
