The Recovery Telehealth Project

Midlands Recovery Center of South Carolina is expanding its effort to reach people with opioid use disorder who are hospitalized for conditions related to intravenous drug use or overdose. The center will train people to serve as certified peer support specialists by offering information on how to build trusting relationships and how to effectively leverage telehealth platforms, among other material. The peer support specialists will then offer virtual support services to OUD patients while hospitalized and as they transition back into the community.
