and support recovery in people they care about as well as maintain their own
health and well-being; aid professionals and students in various disciplines to
work effectively with people with addictions and their families and support
their recovery process; and contribute to a community culture supportive of
recovery. All programs are free and open to anyone interested. Registration is not required. 1.5 hours of
