Recovery-to-Work Listening Sessions

April 2019


ARC hosted a series of public Recovery-to-Work listening sessions to better understand the impact that the substance abuse crisis is having on economic and workforce opportunities across the Region. In addition, these listening sessions explored how communities currently engage in substance abuse treatment and recovery programs, job placement strategies, employment opportunities, and other wrap-around services that support an individualís long-term recovery while getting them back into the workforce as part of a comprehensive recovery ecosystem.
