Addication Awareness Training


Presented by  the Council of Southeast Pennsylvania in partnership with the Addiction Awareness Initiative of TMPC

Saturday, June 4, 2016, 9:00 a.m to 10:30 a.m. at Thompson Memorial Presbyterian Church, Conference Room

“Giving back” is a proud and rewarding tradition within the recovery community. Those who have dealt with their own addiction or the addiction of others extend a hand to those seeking recovery and, in the process, achieve a deeper commitment to their own recovery.

Volunteers wishing to give back receive preliminary training on what it means to be a volunteer and what role they can play in helping others achieve and sustain recovery. This is a 90-minute presentation that includes the history of the Council, why we do what we do and many of the ways in which Volunteers serve. This is orientation is required for all those who wish to volunteer for this initiative.
