Details
Event Description: 
September is National Recovery Awareness Month and Colorado is taking steps to support this important issue. Recovery Ready Colorado (RRCO), is a critical initiative to create advocacy for substance use disorder recovery and highlight Colorado resources for healthy-living in recovery. This statewide initiative will be used to launch a robust RRCO Town Hall meeting of experts who will focus on a range of issues to highlight how we in Colorado are supporting people in recovery and what can be done to implement this support in more communities across Colorado. Without a proper secure base in recovery, the odds of long-term recovery being sustained by people in recovery will continually be marginally possible. Under the guidance of our partnerships with state experts and advocates, we have strategically chosen SAMHSA.org’s four areas of focus, or “pillars” to advocate for a cultural change through public policy and community support: ● suitable employment ● safe; affordable housing ● ability to achieve higher education ● access to recovery related resources
