Governor Doug Burgum and First Lady Kathryn Helgaas Burgum are inviting addiction recovery advocates, behavioral health providers, business and community leaders, faith-based organizations, families, first responders, healthcare providers and administrators, law enforcement, native american communities, university and college representatives, and others to save the date for Recovery Reinvented on September 26, 2017 in Bismarck, North Dakota. The daylong event will feature facilitated conversations with state and national recovery experts to discuss how we can “reinvent recovery” through innovative implementation in North Dakota.
The Governor and First Lady recognize that alcohol and drug use is the number one social problem in North Dakota.
"Half of all arrests are alcohol or drug related and 75% of those in our prisons have an addiction. Addiction is a chronic disease that is treatable. The Governor and I have pledged to reduce the social stigma and shame surrounding addiction and treat addiction like the chronic disease that it is. Recovery Reinvented will bring together state and national recovery experts to share innovative practices that can lead to action - reinventing recovery right here in North Dakota" said First Lady Kathryn Helgaas Burgum.
Recovery Reinvented is scheduled for Tuesday, September 26, 2017 at the Bismarck Event Center in Bismarck, North Dakota.
