September is National Recovery Month!
September is National Recovery Month! The Northwest ATTC is engaged in a number of activities this month to recognize and celebrate the strong and proud recovery community and the dedicated members of the addiction workforce who make recovery in all its forms possible.

Northwest ATTC Webinar: Recovery Capital and Resilience: Head and Tail of the Same Coin, September 20, 2023 (12-1pm PT)
Beyond sobriety, programs dealing with substance use disorders have embraced a more comprehensive goal: Recovery. There are four recognized domains of recovery: Health, Home, Purpose, and Community. There are a myriad of resources, both internal and external, that make up recovery capital. As a person begins their journey, they draw on their initial store of recovery capital and as that journey continues, they gain more recovery capital. More recovery capital, more recovery. More recovery, more recovery capital. By assisting an individual identify their recovery capital and make plans for its increase, their recovery becomes stronger. This session, presented by Norma Jaeger, PhD (ABD), Executive Director of Recovery Idaho, will explore the many potential elements of recovery capital and how to support an individual in building more recovery capital to support their life in recovery.
