RECOVERY AMBASSADOR TRAINING

The Recovery Ambassador Program will prepare individuals to advance public understanding and appropriate responses to addiction. The training program consists of a one-day seminar. Each seminar will accommodate 40 participants. Course material includes instruction in recruiting volunteers, building messages, organizing community action, engaging policy makers, raising money and renewing team effort.

In a Foreword to the training text, "Speaking Out For Addiction Recovery," Congressman Jim Ramstad said: "Public advocacy works and can affect life saving change for this and future generations of alcoholics and addicts. We finally have a textbook to mobilize the recovery community into action. This program is a vital resource for all recovering people, as well as families and friends, who strive to carry the message and seek to make a difference."
