April 26, 2012 - Aids Awareness Day
The Drug Enforcement Administration (DEA) has scheduled another National Prescription Drug Take-Back Day which will take place on Saturday, April 28, 2012, from 10:00 a.m. to 2:00 p.m. This is a great opportunity for those who missed the previous events, or who have subsequently accumulated unwanted, unused prescription drugs, to safely dispose of those medications.
Americans that participated in the DEA’s third National Prescription Drug Take-Back Day on October 29, 2011, turned in more than 377,086 pounds (188.5 tons) of unwanted or expired medications for safe and proper disposal at the 5,327 take-back sites that were available in all 50 states and U.S. territories. When the results of the three prior Take-Back Days are combined, the DEA, and its state, local, and tribal law-enforcement and community partners have removed 995,185 pounds (498.5 tons) of medication from circulation in the past 13 months.
“The amount of prescription drugs turned in by the American public during the past three Take-Back Day events speaks volumes about the need to develop a convenient way to rid homes of unwanted or expired prescription drugs,” said DEA Administrator Michele M. Leonhart. “DEA remains hard at work to establish just such a drug disposal process, and will continue to offer take-back opportunities until the proper regulations are in place.”
“With the continued support and hard work of our more than 3,945 state, local, and tribal law enforcement and community partners, these three events have dramatically reduced the risk of prescription drug diversion and abuse, and increased awareness of this critical public health issue,” said Leonhart.

Recovery Network of Programs is very proud to announce that Karen Reekie and Donna Rivera will be guest speakers at the 2012 AATOD National Conference focusing on the continued success of "Family Night" offered at our Center for Human Services (CHS).
Family Night is a weekly group in which clients and their families come together to discuss issues important to them, their relationships, and their recovery. It's a safe environment where family members can learn about the disease of addiction as well as the benefits of Medication Assisted Treatment. It allows individuals to realize that they are not alone on their journey.
The goal of this group is to educate and support family members, to restore family unity, and improve treatment outcome via family support.
Conference Objectives: evidence-based

Gambling Awareness Week - March 4-10
Gambling is often thought of as an invisible addiction because its outward signs may not be readily observable. Yet it is estimated that there are 6-8 million Americans who are compulsive gamblers, and each of them affects the lives of many others; family, friends, employers, community. Gambling is also often times used either in addition to substance use or mental health issue. Gambling alone also could potentially put clients at risk of relapsing with their other addictions or mental health disorders.
