A Message from CAAP's Board President -
On behalf of the CAAP Board and our Colorado treatment provider and recovery support community, please know that we are actively monitoring the impact of COVID-19 in order to assist and support all service providers including our members, peers, colleagues, clients, facilities and the communities we serve. We realize that this has been and will be an incredible challenge personally and professionally for quite some time to come - so first and foremost we encourage everyone to engage in self-care to safeguard your capacity to engage in this noble profession and be available to those you care for professionally and personally. We encourage you to use the many social media apps and self-care supports available during this time - including Calm and Waking Up. Please take the time to connect with professional resources, like the ones we share below, and personal supports (friends, family, mentors, guides) during this unprecedented time of social and professional distancing.
CAAP is committed to providing support and guidance to all service providers and peer recovery support specialists, working with substance use and mental health disorders. We realize that you have been inundated with a flood of emails and resources over the last six weeks - and are offering you resources that help you during this next chapter of resuming work and social contacts while maintaining safe distancing. As the situation evolves, members and supporters should regularly check this web page for the latest practice resources and support information.
Compassion is essential during this challenging time and CAAP will continue to be of service and support to its members, allied practitioners and supporters, and communities. Please reach out to us as you discover specific needs for guidance and support and we will research resources for you through our networks. NAADAC and the CAAP Board willingly and gratefully offers our hope, resilience and resources to you. Stay healthy, safe and please reach out for support.
Jonathan De Carlo, President
