We’ve been delighted to collaborate with Novant Health on their Opioid Stewardship Campaign, particularly around their stigma elimination initiatives. Novant Health understands what recovery activist Bill White has been teaching us for years, “Words have immense power to wound or heal.” They’ve made a concerted effort to educate their 25,000 staff and partnering physicians at their 15 hospitals and over 400 clinics throughout the southeast. Please visit their new web site summarizing this work to date, including a powerful short animated film discussing the power of language. Novant Health received our Outstanding Recovery Ally Award at APNC’s 2018 Spring Conference. We are accepting award nominations now to be presented at APNC’s 2018 Fall Conference.
We promote the highest standards of professional development and advocate for people working in the field of substance use disorder prevention, treatment and recovery.
