Cedar Rapids Gazette (Newspaper) - December 8, 1974, Cedar Rapids, Iowa 2A Tke RapUs Gazette: Su., Dec. 8, 1J74 igljj fealit s Gamp Good Health COMMUNITY COUNSELING DRUG TREATMENT SERVICE Reality 10: New Name for Expanded Service New Name; Expanded Area By Pat Peterson 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 prolem in the area, Special Problems center is changing its name as it reaches beyond the Cedar Rapids city limits. The new name Reality 10 will be effective Jan. 1, to focus on the organization's effort to reach out into the counties in Area 10. Howard Barnes, executive director of Special Problems center, 629 Eighth street SE, and Foundation II, 1336 C ave- nue NE, said the change was made because Special Prob- lems center is identified with the Cedar Rapids area and the name chanfe' signifies an ef- fort to go beyond the city lim- its into rural areas where drug abuse is increasing. C.R. Expansion Barnes said the National Institute on Drug Abuse (NIDA) released a study say- ing 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 treat- ment director, said the resi- dent house will be remodeled increase its capacity from 12 to 18 people. There are currently 11 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 precau- tions will bring the house up to the level of a minimum se- curity facility. Tom Miskimen, outreach and educational services coor- dinator, 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 arrangemeht will be set ,up where people can benefit from the resident treatment ap- proach, but need not stay at the center over night. He said the day programs include therapy, resident ac- tivity, meals and the whole environment of -the resident treatment facility. As more and more people turn to drug abuse, on what the NIDA calls the ripple ef- fect, more and more facilities and programs are needed to deal with them. Watting List Currently, because Special Problems is federally funded for methadone treatment for .only; 14 persons in a 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 fund- ing guidelines and the in- crease in the need left no al- ternative. Miskimen "said that those who are able to pay on a slid- ing 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 Prob- lems has treated 57 on the methadone, program. Miski- men said the center has used other available funds, to fi- nance the extra people.. McCabe said "Special Problems center was one of the few federally funded drug agencies that did not to 40 percent of its funding in September. JHe believes this is because' of the of the of the 12 staff members, 10., 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-th'ird of the staff at Special Problems are wo- men. Barnes said that is important because more and more women are turning to drugs. Miskimen said that prior to 1968 most drug abusers were women, but in 1968 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 arc again on drugs.

Edward Jarvis reported Saturday. In the first place, serv- ices center, despite defi- cit, did hot cost the residents of the community a cent, Cap- tain Jarvis emphasized. The deficit was underwritten as it has been for several years by the territorial headquar- ters of the Salvation Army. The second "bright spot" was the fact that the annual deficit has been reduced from three years ago to the current "Hopefully, in another year, the operation here can be entirely self-sup- Jarvis 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 opened its new Community center at 1000 C avenue NW. The corps is a member of the United Way and receives community sup- port 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 477 meals were served to men and a total of nights lodging were provided. The captain's hopes of fin- ishing 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 pick-up program. Cemetery Meaning Cemetery actually means a sleeping place, from the Green or dormitory. The Persians 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 dis- carded items for resale In the Red Shield stores. Capt. Jarvis said the Army will pick up "any usable discarded items." They in- clude both large and small appliances, furniture, clo- thing, books, household goods. Although the market is down at the moment, the Salvation Army also picks up newspa- pers and magazines. Persons with "usable discarded items" can call the Army at 365-1491. Trucks are assigned to various quadrants of the city each day and per- sons 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; Tues- Wednesday, northwest; Thursday, south- west; and Friday, Marion and Hiawatha.

Nominate VD Task Force for Top Award The Cedar Rapids-Marion Venereal Disease Task Force is one of four voluntary programs throughout the country nominated for the 1974 National Volunteer award of the Na- tional Center for Voluntary Action. The national winner will be named in February. The VD Task Force, nominated by the American Hospital Assn., originated in the spring of 1972 at St. Luke's hospital through the hospital auxiliary. Since then, It has grown to a community-wide alliance, including such local groups as the Cedar Rapids Jaycecs, Foundation II, Lirin county public health, Toastmasters, and others, working together to educate residents about VD. This is being done through distribution of venereal disease in- formation and support of already established community programs to fight the spread of VD. One of the ways Information is being distributed is through the tape center of the Educational Services center of the Cedar Rapids Community schools. The tape center or retrieval system consists of automatic tape decks linked to telephone lines so that once program ma- terials have been developed, recorded and loaded they can be received by a telephone caller at any time. Dudley Draxton, coordinator of health and physical ed- ucation for the Cedar Rapids schools and a member of the VD Task developed a series of venereal disease tape presentaUbhs.'all of which.are available through the retrieval system. The tapes can be. heard by calling the system number, 'then asking for the tape name and number: General VD tape 6457; gonorrhea tape 6458; syphilis tape -6459. The tape center is open from 8 a.m. to 10 p.m. Monday through Friday.
