Annual Alumni Reunion: Falling Forward Into Recovery

Moving in a forward direction is key to recovery, no matter how rapid or slow the pace of that movement might be. This year’s reunion theme, Falling Forward Into Recovery, reflects that belief. Like any undertaking, the road to recovery unfolds gradually and has phases that range from scary and overwhelming to calm and joyful. Join us for an enlightening day of workshops in which you will reconnect with fellow alumni and strengthen your journey as you move forward in recovery.

We invite you to bring one person to celebrate with you and fine-tune their skills for supporting your recovery.
