Recovery Month brings a circle of gratitude, old shoes, and the overdose epidemic to Colorado’s Capitol

SBR 16
Denver, Co | Colorado State Capitol
Saturday, September 17, 2016 from 9:00 AM to 1:00 PM MDT

Join us as we connect Coloradans of all ages that are affected by drug use, mental health, recovery support issues 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. Simplified access to services and streamlined embedded parity in those services will be a good start…. www.surroundedbyrecovery.org
