National Recovery Month Talks
Tuesdays, September 11 & September 18, 7:00 p.m.
Carnegie Building-Petoskey (451 E. Mitchell St.)
National Recovery Month is a national observance held every September to educate Americans that substance use treatment and mental health services can enable those with a mental and/or
substance use disorder to live a healthy and rewarding life. The theme for Recovery Month 2018 is Join the Voices for Recovery: Invest in Health, Home, Purpose, and Community. The 2018 theme explores how integrated care, a strong community, sense of purpose, and leadership contributes to effective treatments that sustain the recovery of persons with mental and substance use disorders.
Petoskey District Library, Harbor Hall, and Harm Reduction MI are proud to present a two-part series educating the community and celebrating National Recovery month:

Tuesday, September 18, 7:00 p.m. at the Carnegie Building: Pam Lynch from Harm Reduction MI will be joining Pat McGinn to discuss Recovery 101 and P.I.E.S. (model of care that involves the whole-person concept: physical, intellectual, emotional, and spiritual aspects of the person), opiate overdose education, and what Harm Reduction MI is doing for our community.
