Recovery Advocates of Northwest Lower Michigan

Recovery Oriented Systems of Care (ROSC): Promoting Recovery from Substance Use Disorders in Northwest Lower Michigan

We held a one day workshop facilitated by Michael Flaherty, Ph.D. Clinical Psychologist, from Maryland on Friday, October 2, 2015 from 10:00 am to 4:00 pm at Charlevoix Public Library. Since that time, we have had monthly follow up meetings and coordinated several special community activities. On January 23, 2016, we held our first Recovery Day activity involving the showing of The Anonymous People at the local theater followed by presentations on multiple pathways to recovery at the Public Library. Our second Recovery Day activity was on May 21, 2016 and involved viewing the movie, “Memo To Self – Protecting Sobriety through Safety” and then conducting workshops on Recovery Community Organizations at the Public Library. During November of 2016, we helped coordinate the following activities: 1) September 9th – Recovery Community Message Training – 9 am to 12 noon at BASES, 2) September 17th – Recovery Walk & Picnic – registration begins at 10 am in downtown Charlevoix, 3) September 24th – GRACE the movie at Cinema III with Q&A with film maker Cindy Joy Goggins – 11 am to 1 pm, and 4) September 28th – Community Listening Forum – 9 am to 12 noon at BASES.

Thank you to all who participated. We plan to continue with additional activities in 2017 and will post information here when we have something set up. We are definitely planning to do another Recovery Walk in September of 2017 so hope to see you there.
