I recently returned from an amazing conference/training. The Voices Project is partnering with Facebook and several other recovery minded businesses.
It was inspiring and energizing. I felt drawn to doing more work in my own community to prevent substance use disorder and to help those who are afflicted with SUD and/or mental health issues.
Since returning home (via a short camp vacation) I got started planning an event to Stop Stigma regarding mental illness and substance use disorder. #OurStoriesMatter
It is still in the planning stages but, it will entail recovery speakers, book signing, Narcan training and a resource fair.
I have given an interview on costs of treatment to vox.com, and I have started attending a family action group in our state .I look forward to sharing some of the knowledge I gained over the last 10 years or so. I hope to be a resource for families and a recovery advocate.
