Strengthening Our Recovery Event Huge Success!
More than 50 alumni, family members and friends of Ashley attended the panel discussion led by Ashley clinicians Aaron Ramirez and Charlotte Phillips and special guest host, Brandon Novak (author, actor, and former pro skateboarder). The panel, moderated by Ashley Director of Development and Alumni Relations, Martha Meehan-Cohen, spoke about the increased challenges posed by the holidays, especially for those in early recovery. Family conflicts, money issues, parties where alcohol is served – all of these can create stress, fear, anxiety and an increased opportunity for relapse.
This event, part of the Strengthening Our Recovery series offered by Ashley throughout the year and in various regions, was well-received with many attendees expressing thoughts as to the importance and timeliness of the topic.
