The New England ATTC was honored to host the inaugural SAMHSA Region 1 Diversity Inclusion Project Showcase (DIPS): Promoting Recovery-Based Organizations! The goal of the DIPS series is to bring together community-based organizations (CBOs); local, state, and regional leaders; policymakers; funders; philanthropic entities; and additional partner organizations. 

 

This showcase was introduced by Assistant Regional Administrator Taylor Bryan Turner, with remarks by national and state leaders Tom Coderre, Deidre Calvert, and Nancy Navaretta. Moderators Dr. Haner Hernandez, Michele Stewart-Copes, and Daryl McGraw introduced four recovery-oriented community-based organizations that serve historically marginalized communities:

  • Recovery Support Services

  • New Life II Ministries

  • Stairway to Recovery

  • STEPRox Recovery Support Center

 

This event took place virtually on Tuesday, October 5th, 2021 from 1:00 PM to 2:30 PM (ET). A recording of the event can be found here and the slides and agenda that were shared can be found here.
