Georgia Recovery Initiative Announcement
Community Listening Sessions
When:      November 30, 2011 6:00 – 8:00 PM
Where:    Decatur Public Library 215 Sycamore Street Decatur, GA 30030

The Georgia Recovery Initiative Steering Committee will be holding the first of a series of Community Listening Sessions on envisioning a Recovery Oriented System of Services and Supports in Behavioral Health and Addictive Diseases. We want to hear from you how you envision recovery and how a system that embodies and practices recovery would look.
The Georgia Recovery Initiative Steering Committee consists of Advocates, Consumers, Providers, and members of the Georgia Department of Behavioral Health and Developmental Disabilities and the Georgia Council on Substance Abuse. Members of the GRI steering Committee will be present to listen and also to answer any questions about this initiative. The GRI is working on developing a strategy for designing, transforming, and implementing a Recovery Oriented System of Behavioral Health services and supports. This work recognizes and affirms the central role of the voices of those who use and depend on the services provided by DBHDD. The consumer voice, the voice of lived experience is the keystone to effective and comprehensive system change.
Please come on November 30 so that your voice can be listened to as we begin this work of system transformation.
The Community Listening Session is free and open to the public; we would appreciate your registering in advance if you plan to attend.

Refreshments will be provided.
