I am writing to you from St Paul, MN where I'm at the Faces and Voices of Recovery Leadership Summit. As we have wound up Recovery Month, think for a moment about all of the individuals who paved the path for us to be here today, who have provided us the ability to do this work that we do, and who champion it no matter what. Give them a moment of your thoughts and feel your spirits rise.
Who is your Recovery Hero?
At the Summit, a few Recovery Heroes were honored
for their lifetime achievements:
Tom Hedrick 1948-2020 Founded a Parent to Parent Coaching Program
Marc Johnigan 1969- 2021 Founded the Twin Cities Recovery Social Club
Paul Molloy 1939-2022 Founder of the Oxford House
This month, we are in the middle of our new Supervision for the
Peer Recovery Workforce Training Pilot which has 18 of our State's finest Recovery Coach Supervisors and Supervisors to be. Thank you for your contributions to building the Recovery Coach Workforce!
In our Parent Recovery Engagement Training (PAREnT) which is funded by SAMHSA in partnership with our friends at MOAR, we are working with Coaches who work in the DCF and Criminal Justice settings.
Thank you all for your energy, motivation and spirit in doing this work!
Here are our available workshops.:
