Our Executive Director, Shawn McMillen, recently attended the Third District Juvenile Court, Drug Court Commencement Ceremony: Celebrating Recovery. It is amazing what a difference treatment can make! And thank you Chief Justice Matthew B. Durrant! Recovery Happens. Every Day.
We are thrilled to update everyone about the future FSH Recovery Campus! Construction is 30% complete and we are projecting a November 13th finish date! KIER Construction has been working hard with our architects from Harold P. Woodruff Associates to ensure that we get there on time. It is so exciting to see the building take shape, and the vision come to life.
Thank you Dr. McCauley for presenting at our 2015 Town Hall Meeting! Incredible insights, backed up by research, about how childhood truama changes people's brains and lives. And how important that those with addiction are treated as people with a disease and not as criminals.

The names in this post have been changed to protect the innocent. Actually…no they haven’t. All people mentioned have been willing participants in the National Council on Behavioral Health’s 2015 Conference, aka., #natcon15. Aside from the lines (lines for the shuttle, lines for registration, lines for the sessions, the LINES!!!), Day 1 has been a wonderful experience for me.
