Leaders from across Pennsylvania, including Message Carriers Director Robin Horston-Spencer, met with the PA Dept. of Drug and Alcohol Programs to discuss the 21st Century Cures Act to Pennsylvania. The grant provides 26.2 million dollars for 2 years to the state of Pennsylvania from the federal government to combat the opioid epidemic. In spite of winter weather, 5 regions of Pennsylvania and 11 Recovery Community Organizations were represented at this meeting. Three generations of recovery were in attendance. As leaders in their recovery community and professionals in the field, these individuals represented the value of professional mentorship and peer services.
We look forward to continuing to support Recovery Community Organizations throughout Pennsylvania!
