26 people who support recovery attended the free Recovery Volunteer Training on June 9, 2018 at the Susquehanna Workforce Center in Elkton, Maryland. Attendees were introduced to a brief overview of harm reduction, trauma-informed care and addiction and mental health resources in Cecil County. Also discussed are the barriers that many in our community face in regard to access to and coordination of care, family preservation and lack of accessible shelters in Cecil County.
Participants were offered Narcan training and medication by the Alcohol & Drug Recovery Center at the Cecil County Health Department.
These volunteers were invited to take part in Voices of Hope Outreach Teams that will be engaging with the community in various settings:
- Homeless Outreach
- Backpack Outreach
- Overdose Response Team
- Overdose Death Compassion Team
If you are interested in participating in any of these efforts, or volunteering your talent in another way (administration, marketing, training, fundraising, etc) please email firstname.lastname@example.org
