On Dec. 4, Daymark Recovery Services, Inc. won the i2i Social Determinants Challenge Award.
The award was presented to Daymark Recovery Services for its work with the homeless population of Forsyth County during the initial outbreak of the COVID-19 pandemic. With the leadership and guidance of Forsyth County Government, and through cooperative agreements with Cardinal Innovations, Daymark was able to move its workforce both remotely and physically to another facility while having their regular outpatient offices up fitted to house homeless persons that were COVID-19 positive and presumed positive.
This effort took place over the course of two days and allowed for continued access to behavioral health and substance abuse services, while simultaneously curbing the spread of COVID-19 in the Forsyth County community. While this award was given for work performed in Forsyth County, Daymark provides care in 30 North Carolina counties — including Stanly — and served citizens last year from 88 of North Carolina’s 100 counties. If you are in need of care for a behavioral health or substance abuse illness, contact your local Daymark office that may be found at www.daymarkrecovery.org.
