Coming Full Cirlce: Bringing the Gifts of Recovery Back to the Community
Tuesday, October 23, 2012

The New Recovery Advocacy Movement works to remove the cultural stigma attached to addiction and recovery. It opens doors for recovering people—those with the disease of addiction and family members—to share the gifts of wisdom, resilience and awareness with the larger community. Not only does this benefit the community, it brings those affected by addiction truly back home. Guest Bill White is a senior research consultant at Chestnut Health Systems/Lighthouse Institute and has served as a volunteer consultant to Faces and Voices of Recovery since its inception. He holds an M.A. in Addiction Studies, has worked in the addictions field since 1969, counseling, training, and writing. Bill has authored or co-authored numerous articles and books, including Let's Go Make Some History: Chronicles of the New Addition Recovery Advocacy Movement. Learn more at www.williamwhitepapers.com.
