FOCUS ON RECOVERY SERIES
Each fall as we celebrate National Recovery Month, CNCAA invites you to " Focus On Recovery,"  a free educational/inspirational series culminating with our "Tree Of Hope" Soup Supper. Recovery Month promotes the benefits of prevention, treatment, and recovery for mental and substance use disorders, celebrates people in recovery, gives thanks to the contributions of treatment and service providers, and promotes the message that recovery is possible - and truly something to celebrate!  Recovery Month spreads the positive message that behavioral health is essential to overall health, that prevention works, treatment is effective and people can and do recover.

​​Join us as we celebrate the recovery of our guest speakers over the next few weeks.  We are positive you will find them as encouraging and inspirational as we do!

"Let Go, Let God" - a term used at 12-step support group meetings everywhere and it's good advice but what does it mean? Let go of what?  Let God do what?  And what if you don't trust God, why would you let go to that kind of God?  Scott will dig into these questions and try to make some sense of it all!
