Rise Program

Rise Program

Lifehouse understands that substance use disorders can often lead to incarceration, and that's why they have partnered with Eddy County to provide peer-led classes in the Detention Center. These group classes are taught by certified peer support workers and focus on practical recovery skills that help inmates transition into daily life. The program also provides support and financial assistance for individuals leaving jail with basic needs. In addition, Lifehouse and Eddy County are working together to train correctional officers to better understand and deal with mental health and substance use issues. This training will provide transitional case management and support for inmates after release. The program is funded by a state grant with plans to expand.
