“Recovery Works" to be presented at meeting

Posted: Friday, October 6, 2017

“Recovery Works” is a program that is making treatment accessible for individuals involved in the criminal justice system. The Recovery Works program will be presented at the Huntington County Chamber of Commerce’s HR/Professional Development Group meeting on Friday, October 13. This program is a follow up to the Chamber’s Lunch ’n Learn that was presented on the heroin and opioid epidemic to more than 125 individuals on Wednesday, September 27.

Shelly Snyder, director of the local Bowen Center, will present the overall services provided by the Bowen Center, while Ashlie Schlemmer will present the Recovery Works program. The Recovery Works program is an individualized treatment recovery program that helps remove the financial barriers to treatment many involved in the criminal justice system often face. While the goal is to get clients connected to other funding sources and to decrease recidivism, Recovery Works allows clients to start the treatment process, or to complete the treatment process if no other pay sources can be identified. The Recovery Works program has been implemented by the Huntington County Jail.

If you would like to learn more about the Recovery Works program, RSVP to skimmel@huntington-chamber.com or by calling the office at (260) 356-5300 by next Wednesday, October 11. The HR/Professional Group meeting is free but there is a $10 cost for lunch.
