Message from our 2013 President, Ashley E. Phillips
This is an exciting and hopeful time. We are a young organization and we are growing. The field of Recovery is changing rapidly as science and culture intersect in new and meaningful ways. No longer will people be directed to “one-size-fits-all,” cookie cutter treatment programs. Professional Recovery Coaches and Peer Coaches are the wave of the future-together we fill the gap; we are the proverbial “missing link” in the arena of recovery. If you are not a member, I encourage you to join. Visit us on Facebook!
