Cedar Rapids Gazette (Newspaper) - December 8, 1974, Cedar Rapids, Iowa 2A Th* (rdar Rapids Glzaitr Spa., D»f S. 1»74 -7 COM MUN IT) COUNSELING F DRUG TREATMENT SERVICE Reality I 0: New Name for Expanded Service New Name; Expanded Area By Pat Petersen The drug scene is like new trends in clothes and music. It took several years for it to reach the rural and smaller urban areas. To combat the increasing drug abuse protein in the area, Special Problems center is changing its name as it reaches beyond the Cedar Rapids city limits. The new name Reality IO will be effective Jan. I. to focus on the organization's effort to reach out into the counties in Area IO. Howard Barnes, executive director of Special Problems center, 829 Eighth street SE, and Foundation II, 1338 C avenue NE, said the change was made because Special Problems center is identified with the Cedar Rapids area and the name change signifies an effort to go beyond the city limits into rural areas where drug abuse is increasing. CR. Expansion Barnes said the National Institute on Drug Abuse* (NIDA) released a study saying drug abuse was moving out of the large urban areas into the smaller urban areas and the rural communities. To help combat this. Barnes said Special Problems is going to reach out into the rural areas where drug abuse* is on the increase But the program in Cedar Rapids is not going to suffer because of the expansion. Lloyd McCabe, resident treatment director, said the resident house will be remodeled to increase its capacity from 12 to 18 people. There are currently ll people living in the house at 522 Eighth street SE He said changes in the house s security arrangements are also being made. McCabe said the new security precautions will bring the house* up to the level of a minimum security facility. Tom Miskimen, outreach and educational services coordinator, said the new security program will serve as a means of curbing illicit goods transported by visitors to the house and as an attempt to make illegal exits of court-referral clients difficult. McCabe said a new day-care arrangement will be set up where people can benefit from the resident treatment approach. but need not stay at the center over night. He said the day programs include therapy, resident activity. meals and the whole environment of the resident treatment facility As more and more people Salvation Army Service Unit Deficit Is Down Although the Salvation Army Men’s Social Service center finished the fiscal year with a $4,900 deficit, the year-end report had two "bright spots,” Capt. Edward Jarvis reported Saturday. In the first place, tbc services center, despite (he deficit, did not cost the residents of the community a cent, Captain Jarvis emphasized The deficit was underwritten — as it has been for several years — by the territorial headquarters of the Salvation Army The second "bright spot” was the fact that the annual deficit has been reduced from $80 OOO three years ago to the current $4,000. "Hopefully, in another year, the operation here can be entirely self-supporting,” Jarv is said The center, located at 2920 First avenue NE. is one of two divisions of the Salvation Army serving this area The center, which offers a work rehabilitation program for men, is supported entirely by Income from its Red Shield stores The other division is the Salvation Army Corps which recently open«*d its new Community center at 1000 C avenue MW The corps is a member of the United Way and receives community support for its welfare work and programs for young people Capt Jarvis termed 1974 "the busiest year” for the Men’s Social Service center since his assignment here three years ago A total of 82 • 477 meals were served to men and a total of 14 473 nights lodging were provided The captain’s hopes of finishing the next fiscal year "in the black” have been dimmed somewhat in the last two or three weeks by a decline in the number of telephone calls from persons with discarded items to contribute to the pic k up program. Cemetery Meaning Cemetery actually means a sleeping place, from    the Green "kiometorior”,    or dormitory. The Persians tailed their cemeteries “the Cities of the Silent.” The pick-up program is the backbone of support for the program. Men participating in the rehabilitation program repair and refurbish the discarded items for resale in the Red Shield stores. (apt. Jarvw said the Army will pick up “any usable discarded items.” They include both large and small appliances, furniture, clothing, books, household goods. Although the market is down at the moment, the Salvation Army also picks up newspapers and magazines Persons    with    "usable discarded items” can call the Army at 385-1491 Trucks are assigned to various quadrants of the* city each day and persons can insure more prompt pickup if they call a day or two before the truck is scheduled in their area The schedule is Monday, northeast Cedar Rapids; Tuesday .southeast. Wednesday, northwest; Thursday, southwest; and Friday, Marion and Hiawatha turn to drug abuse, on what the NIDA calls the ripple effect, more and more facilities and programs are needed to deal with them. W affing List Currently, because Special Problems is federally funded for methadone treatment for only 14 persons in a year, the center has had to institute a waiting list for the methadone program. Miskimen said the staff was not pleased with the move, but he pointed out that the funding guidelines and the increase in the need left no alternative. Miskimen said that those who are able to pay on a sliding scale for their treatment can get methadone sooner than those who get the service free. Barnes said only those who can prove they are on welfare can qualify for the free treatment. Miskimen said no one is turned away and therapy is provided while the person waits for the methadone Since June I, Special Problems has treated 57 on the methadone program. Miskimen said the center has used other available funds to finance the extra people. McCabe said Special McAvoy Heads Catholic Unit Robert McAvoy, 3124 Terry drive SE, was elected Friday to a one-year term as president of the Catholic Laymen's club. Other officers elected to one-year terms were James B Oetken, vice-president, and Herman Stecklein, secretary Elected to two-year terms on the board of directors were Kenneth Quinn, Lester Moucka, and John Lot her The men s organization is dedicated to encouraging young men to enter the priesthood The group has approximately 58 members. 3 Governors for Ark. in One Month LITTLE RUK (AP) -Arkansas will have three governors in January — in-cumlienl Dale Bumpers resigns to go to the U S senate. Ll. Gov. Bob Riley serves in Bumpers’ absence, and then Bumpers is succeeded by David ll Pryor, who won office in the Nov 5 election Problems center was one of the few federally funded drug agencies that did not lose 20 to 40 percent of its funding in September. He believes this is because of the high quality of the staff — of the 12 staff members, ll) have college degrees and the other    two are working    on theirs; the high quality of    the treatment and the large' number of people served in the program. About one-third of the staff at Special Problems are women    Barnes said that    is important because more and more women are turning to drugs Miskimen said that prior to 1988 most drug abusers were women, but in 1988 the trend changed so that it was 30 percent women and 70 percent men Now however, he said the trend is reversing and more    women are again    on drugs.
