Heritage CARES

Heritage CARES is a virtual support program designed to help individuals struggling with stress, substance use, and/or suicidal ideation. We utilize evidence-based strategies, ranging from 12-step facilitation to harm-reduction and behavioral modification, to support individuals and families in their health and wellness journey.

The Problem

Navigating through life’s obstacles can be challenging under the best circumstances, and it can often lead to elevated levels of stress. According to the National Institute on Drug Abuse (NIDA), there is a distinct relationship between stress and substance use.

The Heritage CARES Program is designed to address the disparity in seeking treatment for stress, substance issues, and/or suicidal ideation. It provides easy access to private support at any time and at any stage of the recovery journey.

The Solution

Quality of Care

Heritage CARES is founded on sound clinical theory and practices such as motivational interviewing, harm reduction principles, and family systems theories. Our peer coaches are trained as family recovery coaches and are specialists in engagement, retention, and system navigation.

Family Inclusive

We include family members and loved ones in support treatment to alter substance use patterns in ways that bring about effective change for the entire family. This feature is included in the program at no additional charge.


Program users and their families can conveniently and privately access support from certified health care professionals on any mobile device at any time of day.
