Your attendance is important! We all can lend a hand and keep shining a light on this disease! Fresh air on this issue will help us recover!
SAVE LIVES NOW!
COMMUNITY-BASED EVENTS WILL RESUME POST-COVID STATE-MANDATED RESTRICTIONS
aim to provide ongoing/regular/quarterly discussions to the larger community. This allows us to talk about the disease of addiction in an informed manner, find belonging within the support of the community, and change our perceptions about it.
INTERESTED IN HOSTING AN EVENT IN YOUR TOWN OR VIRTUALLY?
We had been holding our Community-Based Events before the pandemic, and since have added virtual options. These events bring people together regularly to find solutions through ongoing informative discussions. They open with Alumni in Recovery members' stories. Providing and establishing community engagements for local people to “get into action” is crucial if we want to turn the tide on the epidemic. It will require us to listen to each other, be well informed, and be united in solutions.
Through the recovery and grieving community, we assist community leaders in planning events, helping to facilitate local volunteerism among people through these unique engagements.
We are bringing unity to the community! This disease does not discriminate, and we can help our friends and neighbors on a local level, engaging and including all people.

We partner with
THE BLACK POSTER PROJECT
for these events.
The Black Poster Project is a visual display of hundreds of lives lost to addiction, founded by Dee Gillen, who is a Parent Program Member. This impactful display leaves the individual with a profound overview of the devastation caused by the opioid crisis and can be displayed in schools, churches, parks community centers, etc. It can be viewed in a stand-alone silent memorial, or conjunction with a speaker community event. Contact email@example.com for more information and visit the website.
