03:57 PM -- Recovery Support

Rourke Weaver, representing Red Rock Recovery Center, Michael Miller, representing Young People in Recovery, and Tonya Wheeler, representing Advocates for Recovery Colorado, spoke about their recovery experiences and provided two handouts to the committee (Attachments J and K). They explained the importance of using non-stigmatized language for people in recovery, highlighted the lack of recovery services and support, and described the experiences of people who have been both successful in their recovery and who have faced ongoing challenges. They also emphasized the importance of meaningful and gainful employment in the recovery process. The panelists answered committee questions.
