Policy & Procedure Starter
This “Starter” would provide a jumping-off place for communities in creating their own policy and procedure manual based on their community’s and organization’s needs.
Building Your Team
This is a training on how to build a team specifically designed to address recovery in a community. These teams often look different from treatment or prevention focused teams.
Moving from Institutionalized to Community Organized
This training addresses the differences between working within an institutionalized setting and a grassroots effort. It would serve to create a shift in how the team thinks through and works towards its goals.

Interweaving Primary Prevention & Recovery Efforts
CINC would provide training that would lead the workgroup through a process of understanding and ultimately buying into the idea of “Everything Leads Back to Prevention”. It would highlight how differences of the continuum of care build on each other vs. compete against each other.
Reduce Stigma & Discrimination
Through language training and current discrimination law presentation CINC would help the workgroup to begin to create more positive messaging and a healthier attitude towards substance use disorders and supporting the recovery community.
CINC would facilitate conversation on basic business skills, 501c3 guidance, and prompt questions from the workgroup regarding maintaining a business while doing community organizing work.
