Targeted Opioid Response Grant
I've been hired at the LCO Health Center as the Tribal Opioid Response grant Director or coordinator (TOR) funded under a SAMSHA grant. I am an LCO tribal member and Al Trepania was my dad. I’ve been in recovery myself from alcohol and drugs for 18+ years. I earned my Associates degree in Substance Use Disorder Counseling and Human Services in 2003 at the LCO College. I started at the LCO Health Center as a counselor in training in 2003 and was transferred to the LCO Halfway House as director and counselor for about 10 years. I worked for Sawyer County as a counselor and prevention specialist in training for a year and then for Red Cliff Community Health Center for about five months until I came back to LCO on January 9, 2017. I will be working primarily on the TOR grant for the LCO Health Center, Behavioral Health at the Bizhiki Wellness Center and am looking forward to working on improving services for our community during this time of opioid addiction crisis. I will still continue with limited services of one day per week with the LCO CCS program. I hold Wisconsin licensure as a Clinical Substance Abuse Counselor and as a Prevention Specialist in Training. I currently am the Chairperson for the LCO Drug Task Force, board member of the Northwood’s Coalition prevention initiative out of Marshfield Clinic that LCO is a member of, LCO College advisory board for the Substance Use Disorder program, and BZZDD board.
The TOR grant and the Drug Task Force have been identifying where services have been overwhelmed, understaffed, or lacking coordination of care and why our Tribal Members are not seeking out services within our community and trying to find answers to improve our services to our community members and promote wellness in our community. Please feel free to contact the Bizhiki Wellness Center and talk to myself, Tammy Bergum Administrator of Behavioral Health and LCO Comprehensive Community Support Program (CCS), or Marie Basty, Director of LCO CCS program. This is Lac Courte Oreilles Community Health Center and we want to have every tribal member feel they belong and are welcomed here for services.
