Community Strategies for Addressing
Addiction, Recovery and Prevention
The devastating human impact of addiction touches almost every Vermonter in some way. In addition, communities themselves face the daunting challenge addiction presents to social fabric and economic vitality. How can a community come together to address addiction and support meaningful prevention and recovery initiatives?
 The health and economic burdens of addiction on Vermont’s workforce are substantial. Learn about existing programs, and examples of success, that are making a difference.
 From transportation and housing to workforce support, recreation, and engagement—identify tools and strategies that communities can employ for prevention and to help those in recovery.
 Learn about a new consortium of community leaders in Franklin and Grand Isle Counties coming together to tackle the substance abuse challenge in this region.
Complete Registration packet will follow soon.
