Groups Recover Together was founded in 2014 to make treatment for opioid addiction respectful, accessible and affordable. We empower our members to regain control of their lives through a combination of community support, outpatient weekly group therapy and medication to manage withdrawal using buprenorphine and naltrexone.
What differentiates Groups is the belief that long-term recovery from opioids is tied to aspects of life that are beyond the reach of traditional medical care. We approach fighting addiction as a team sport and provide each member with a care team that works together to ensure our members receive comprehensive, coordinated care. Our outpatient model is designed to fit into our member’s schedules so they can keep working and living a normal life. As a result, our outcomes reflect the success of our model and the commitment of our members with 74% remaining in treatment after 6 months, 90% attending group therapy each week and 89% abstaining from illicit substances each week.
Groups has grown to become the national leader in value-based care for opioid use disorder that is proven to help our members beat addiction and get their lives back.
At Groups, the Recovery Support Specialist works closely with newly admitted members to assist with transition from their intake to their home team, and with existing members to provide recovery support services. The Recovery Support Specialist is a vital part of the treatment team: they provide assistance with Social Determinants of Health, coordinate care internally and externally, help navigate entitlements, and support the member’s overall wellness during their recovery journey at Groups. The Recovery Support Specialist works with members who have complex social, medical, and mental health needs. This role reports to the Recovery Support Supervisor.
