Join us as we increase Colorado’s Recovery Capital, recognize National Recovery Month, and raise awareness to current health and wellness unmet needs like the national prescription drug epidemic, escalating opioid overdoses, treatment/recovery rather than incarceration, more blending of MH/SA services and increased family participation and education in recovery support services. Easier Access to Services and Streamlined Parity in those services will be a good start….Peer Coach Academy Colorado·
