Rutgers Stigma Event January 8th
Our Stories Have Power Trainings in Voorhees on November 23rd and in Robbinsville on December 7th.
The training was developed by Faces and Voices of Recovery, and will be trained by Aaron Kucharski, NCADD-NJ’s Advocacy Training, to address the language of recovery. This training will teach people in recovery, their family members and supporters to speak in a way that doesn’t feed into the negative public perception (stigma) that already exists for individuals in recovery from addictions. If you are interested, please RSVP as the training is offered in two locations in New Jersey.
