Community and Family Resources is awarded state contract

The Iowa Department of Public Health recently awarded a competitive contract to Community and Family Resources as part of the stateás new Integrated Provider Network, which includes the delivery of IDPH-funded substance abuse and problem gambling prevention and treatment services beginning Jan. 1, 2019.

One of the goals of the Integrated Provider Network established by IDPH is focused on maintaining a comprehensive, effective, and accessible system of care throughout the state for Iowans with substance use or problem gambling disorders who have limited financial and insurance resources. Additionally, through research-based prevention and education services, Integrated Provider Network contractors will focus efforts on reducing substance use and problem gambling disorders among individuals of all ages.

âWe are grateful for this continued opportunity to offer outpatient substance abuse and problem gambling treatment and prevention services for individuals who meet the stateás eligibility requirements within the counties of Boone, Calhoun, Hamilton, Humboldt, Pocahontas, Story, Webster, and Wright,ã CFRás Executive Director, Michelle De La Riva said.

In addition to outpatient services, CFR was also awarded contract funding for the provision of residential substance abuse treatment services for both adults and juveniles from all areas of the state of Iowa who meet eligibility requirements.

âNotably, services for adults in need of specialized detoxification services are now included as part of the Integrated Provider Network contract,ã De La Riva explained.

Community and Family Resources offers substance abuse, mental health, and problem gambling treatment and prevention services. In Fiscal Year 2018, CFR provided treatment services to 2,725 individuals and reached over 14,000 individuals through prevention services to schools, businesses, and community groups.
