Looking for local guidance?

We're here to help.

Roanoke Valley HOPE Initiative (RVHI) “with Angels” is designed to provide a gateway to professional resources for persons suffering from SUDs (Substance Use Disorders), in any form (opiates, meth, marijuana, alcohol), within the greater Roanoke area, specifically but not limited to Roanoke City, Roanoke County, Salem, Vinton, Botetourt and Craig, who ask to enter the HOPE program. This program is also designed to inform the community at-large as to the severity of the Opioid epidemic confronting this community.

 

RVHI will act as a gatekeeper and a pathway for the community to learn about and access substance abuse services that are available to everyone (hopefully, before an overdose or fatality occurs).  RVHI consists of volunteer members (Angels), the Roanoke City Police Department, and civilian partners that will facilitate monthly (or more frequent) community-based “drop in” sessions/meetings for persons with SUD’s where they can get information about professional health services available to them, as well as turn in any drugs or drug paraphernalia they may have in their possession.

 

At the “drop in” site, a sworn officer will be present to do simple warrant checks and assist with completion of participant forms to be signed.  If you have an active arrest warrant or charge or are considered unsafe, or if you are unable to benefit due to being high, inebriated, or psychotic, you will not be admitted into the program.  Drugs or drug equipment will be turned over to a “sworn officer”.  Once documented, a sworn officer will properly dispose of these items.

 

After a brief screening to identify the appropriate level of treatment, the participant will be matched with the following services that they are ready for and that best meet their needs:

  • Medical detoxification programs

  • Residential Treatment programs

  • Inpatient/Outpatient mental health services

  • Outpatient Services

  • Training on the proper use of nasal Naloxone.  

 

Ongoing community efforts are being made to increase affordable resources that cover the full spectrum of the necessary continuum of care.  Service availability may depend on insurance coverage.  Scholarships are provided for residential treatment through a network sponsored by the law enforcement affiliated nonprofit called, Police Assisted Addiction and Recovery Initiative (PAARI) however, transportation may be a barrier, as most of these sites are throughout the country.  Every effort will be made to provide timely treatment, but this cannot be guaranteed.

 

Our ultimate goal is for individuals with the disease of addiction to know where to go to find answers and advice before it’s too late.
