St. Louis County Offers Virtual Recovery Celebration Event
September is National Recovery Month. For people living with substance use or mental health disorders, the road to recovery is an on-going event that deserves celebration at its milestones. As with many other things in this pandemic-year, in-person events have been put on hold. But that's not stopping St. Louis County from celebrating and recognizing individuals who are on the road to their own recovery.
The county has teamed up with the CAPE Coalition, Bois Forte Band of Chippewa, and the University of Minnesota Extension to offer a virtual event: "Celebrate Recovery Together" - scheduled for Thursday, September 17 from 1:00 to 3:00 PM. The event is free to attend, and open to anyone who wants to take part.
So what can you expect at the Celebrate Recovery Together event? According to organizers, they have lined up information about relapse prevention, self-care, education and prevention, and community support. Specific topics for break-out sessions include:
- AA Communities
- NA Communities
- Healthy Living Skills/Prenatal Care
- Tobacco Cessation
- Celebrate Recovery Groups
- Resilience Techniques - when dealing with High ACE's Scores
- Sober Squad
- Recovery Alliance Duluth
The event is free - and a recorded version will be archived and available for the public to access at any time in the future.
