Open to all, the Recovery Ally Training is delivered in an interactive two-hour session, facilitated by a member of our team or a trained community member.
There are five key objectives for the program.
- Understand the complex nature of addiction as a disease and that substance use disorders often cannot be resolved by the individual simply choosing to stop.
- Confront myths and stigma regarding addiction and recovery and how its negative impact deters individuals from seeking support.
- Use empathetic language and effectively listen when a person chooses to honor you by disclosing that they are struggling with substance use and/or other mental and behavioral health challenges.
- Define and understand that recovery is a life-time journey with multiple pathways to achieving wellness in recovery.
- Know available recovery support resources that are on and off campus and how to access them.
