ISUDT Ambassadors at Sierra Conservation Center (SCC) showed just how big their hearts are at a Valentine’s Day event.
Integrated Substance Use Disorder Treatment (ISUDT) is a comprehensive, evidence-based approach to treating Substance Use Disorder (SUD) in California prisons. ISUDT provides timely and effective evidence-based treatment and transitions to incarcerated individuals with SUD.
The SCC ISUDT Ambassadors came together and hosted a staff event on Feb. 14. Ambassadors raised funds in numerous ways to buy 400 jumbo cookies to hand out to employees. Staff also baked additional cookies to hand out; by the end of the day, almost 500 cookies were handed out to SCC staff members.
Each cookie contained facts about the ISUDT program attached to the cookie wrapper with a ribbon. ISUDT Ambassadors decorated, packaged and prepared the cookies the evening before the event.
ISUDT Ambassadors support ISUDT in all aspects, including educating others about the program. During the event, ISUDT Ambassadors were present to answer any questions staff had about the program.
Staff shared positive feedback and continued to reach out after the event asking for more information and sharing how much they enjoyed the cookies.
