Clients are referred to the ARMOT team by hospital staff, and a mobile case manager offers comprehensive care assessments for substance use disorder treatment services, with referrals and linkages to treatment providers and support services. Certified Peer Recovery Specialists serve as part of the ARMOT team by providing peer-based recovery support services before, during, and after treatment to the patient and his/her family members.
