How Can I Participate?

  • Learn how to stop or reduce your drinking


    Are you wondering if you drink too much or if your use of marijuana and other drugs is starting to get out of hand?


    Interested in learning how to reduce or stop your use of alcohol or drugs, such as marijuana, crystal meth or cocaine?



      The National Institute of Health provides a user-friendly manual on cutting down or stopping drinking.

    Looking for support on the web or prefer social media over in-person meetings to help you learn how to live without alcohol and other drugs?



      Smart Recovery offers many types of mutual help groups for people learning to live without alcohol and other drugs.

      If you enjoy social media and meeting people in recovery on the web, start socializing now at In The Rooms and LifeRing.
  • Member Resource Library


      In order to feel emotionally well, it is important to feel physically well. Physical wellness for you may include losing weight or quitting smoking or improving your sleep. A wide range of wellness resources on the web have been organized in the public Community Care Resource Library.

    Are you a Community Care member?


    You can access our Online Library and Self-Help Resource Center for an extensive range of wellness resources for free!

    Community Outreach and Recovery Specialists (CORS) Program


      The Community Outreach Recovery Specialist (CORS) works with four hospitals to identify people who may have a substance use disorder, in addition to the medical condition that led to a hospitalization.

      Participation in the CORS intervention program can help you discover possible treatment options for a substance use disorder (SUD), discuss services that are available, relate personal experiences to promote and support recovery, and provide you with access to resources to find social service agencies.

    • Eligibility Criteria:
      • Age 18 or older
      • Community Care insurance
      • Medical admission is related to substance use
      • Medical admission in one of the four participating hospitals (Allegheny General, UPMC East, UPMC Mercy, and UPMC McKeesport)
