The Public Defender Corporation for the 5th Judicial Circuit in Ripley, WV now has a recovery coach to help connect clients with the appropriate treatment services. The recovery coach has helped 65 clients from Jackson, Roane, and Calhoun Counties enter treatment. By linking the clients to treatment, the recovery coach can assist in turning the client’s life around and help prevent against future recidivism. The recovery coach is promoting access to and awareness of treatment through their specific knowledge, advocacy, and lived experience. The Public Defender’s Office has collaborated with many organizations including the Pilot Club of Jackson County which provided clients with shower and hygiene supplies as they transitioned into long-term treatment programs.
