Recovery & Integrated Services of Care (RISC) is an organization that was developed in the fall of 2012 to support individuals and their families in recovery from substance use in Montcalm County. Membership is made up of representatives from the recovery community, the court system, substance use treatment agencies, local churches, and the legal system. Funding to support the organization's efforts is provided by Riverhaven Coordinating Agency.
RISC's mission statement is, "To establish as many pathways as necessary to achieve substance use disorder recovery." In order to support this mission, RISC is organized into four primary areas of focus, which include Coordination of Services and Resources, Community Involvment, Recovery Services, and Resource Mapping. Subcommittees are assigned to address each of the four areas and provide regular updates on the work completed during the monthly RISC meetings.
