A Conversation with Carolyn Delaney and Alison Jones Webb: The Impact of Recovery Allies in Our Communities & Prevention Work
September 19 @ 12:00 pm - 1:00 pm
Join the New England PTTC during 2023 National Recovery Month as we interview Carolyn Delaney, founder of Journey Magazine, and Alison Jones Webb, author of Recovery Allies, during this one-hour special.
This engaging hour-long discussion will focus on the impact recovery allies working in the prevention field can have in our communities. With Alison’s book, “Recovery Allies”, at the center, they will discuss how participants can identify their own circle of influence, gather education and resources to share with their circle in order to invite and encourage concerned citizens to do what they can to reduce addiction stigma.
This interview will also provide you with the opportunity to submit your questions for Carolyn and Alison and they will respond to your questions LIVE during the webinar!
