LVMAC Tidbit: Free Peer-to-Peer Recovery Training Opportunity

Published by LVMAC on

Hello LVMAC friends,

I want to share news about a training we are helping to coordinate – specifically for those working with veterans who are suffering with substance use disorders.  Treatment Trends is collaborating with Pennsylvania Recovery Organizations Alliance (PRO-A) to offer a Special Training Opportunity:

On Friday, November 1, 2019, “Serving Those who SERVED” training will be offered at Cetronia Ambulance Corps, 4300 Broadway, Allentown, PA 18104. There is no registration fee to attend and there is free parking.

The first session will begin at 9 a.m., with an hour break for lunch on your own from 12-1 p.m. and then resuming for the second session from 1-4 p.m.  Each session is approved for 3 CEU from the PA Certification Board (you will receive 2 certificates).  Please see the attached flyer for more information.

Given the complex and dynamic nature of Veteran culture and identity it is important that those working with individuals who have served in the Armed Forces receive continuing education on recent evidence-based interventions and culturally appropriate techniques to implement them.  This training focuses on the peer-to-peer relationship, but will be useful for all of those in the recovery service system.

Your trainer is Danielle N. Dormer, M. Ed., NCC.  Danielle is a Veteran of the US Army.  She is in long-term recovery from drug and alcohol use.

Seats are still available.  Please email me to register.

A point to note:  Cetronia facilities and grounds are smoke-free.  Therefore, no smoking is permitted on breaks.

Thank you!
