Apr 09, 2018

Rockland, Camden — The Mid-Coast Recovery Coalition will host two local presentations by Phil Valentine, the executive director for the Connecticut Community for Addiction Recovery. Both presentations will take place Wednesday, April 18. The event at Oceanside High School, 400 Broadway, in Rockland, is at 4 p.m.; the event at Camden Regional High School, 25 Keelson Dr., Rockport, is at 7 p.m.

Valentine will present on a new approach to addressing addiction called “recovery coaching.”  Recovery coaching integrates coaches into settings such as hospital emergency departments, prisons, jails and many other settings where they can work with staff to assure better outcomes to those in need of help. Valentine will speak about his own recovery from drug addiction and how to end discrimination surrounding addiction and recovery.

The events are free and no reservation is required. For more information, contact the Mid-Coast Recovery Coalition at 701-1182 or info@midcoastrecovery.org.
