Peer Support Within the Hospitals.

Addiction Medicine Consult Services is a team based approach with physicians providing consultation, assessment and treatment to patients admitted to one of the three area hospitals. When a patient is admitted to the hospital, their medical team may access the services of AMCS, and if appropriate, the patient will receive the services of AMCS.

Umbrella provides peer support and outreach services to clients while they are in the hospital, and has found this to be an effective and meaningful way to build relationships and continue support after they are discharged.
