Now is your opportunity to bring Reclaiming Futures to your community? A recent grant from the Conrad N. Hilton Foundation will fund two new Reclaiming Futures sites, and the request for proposals is available here.

The two communities selected will implement the Reclaiming Futures model and join our national learning collaborative that shares resources, improves data, and promotes new standards of practice. As part of their implementation, the two sites will also take part in an innovative national pilot of SBIRT (Screening, Brief Intervention, and Referral to Treatment).

The Reclaiming Futures model combines system reforms, treatment improvement, and community engagement to help young people break the cycle of drugs, alcohol and crime. Key elements of the Reclaiming Futures model include:

  • Establishing substance abuse and mental health screening and assessment for juvenile courts;
  • Developing individualized care plans;
  • Training substance abuse and mental health treatment providers in evidence-based interventions;
  • Involving community as mentors and role models to provide the positive support teens need.

The Reclaiming Futures national program office will provide significant technical assistance to these communities. Each community selected for the national learning collaborative will benefit from funding for a project director and SBIRT coordinator staff, an online toolkit, individualized coaching, and participation in our SBIRT pilot, and our national learning collaborative. The deadline for applications will be November 13, 2014 and successful applicants will be notified on December 5th, 2014. We hope you will consider this exciting opportunity to bring Reclaiming Futures to your community.
