Strengthening Our Recovery Workshop

The Relapse Process with James Ryan

DATE: Thursday, November 16, 2017

TIME: 6:30 pm

PLACE: The New York Center for Living • 226 E. 52nd St., New York, NY 10022

TOPIC: Recovery is a lifelong process. Unfortunately, that process can include relapse – a return to old patterns and behaviors that culminate with drinking and/or using. What defines us is how well we rise after falling. If you’ve relapsed, feel in danger of relapsing or want to strengthen your recovery, Ashley’s expert staff can help you get back on your feet with a recovery plan that addresses your unique needs and circumstances. Instead of simply repeating the same treatment, we confront relapse with fresh eyes, identifying underlying issues, triggers, and co-occurring conditions. Using this individual, refreshed approach, we face challenges with you and never let up. During this workshop our Young Adult Program Director, James Ryan, will walk through how relapse happens, how we can prevent relapse, and how we can return to recovery.

This is a free event and open to everyone. For more information contact Alumni Services at 410.273.2279,
