Virginia PFS 2015 sub-recipient community partners who participated in the Intersection Between Prevention and Recovery Approaches training held on March 22, 2017 in Staunton, Virginia.
During this peer-sharing session, participants will have the opportunity to share successes as they begin to engage the recovery community in prevention initiatives. Participants will explore potential solutions to current and anticipated challenges as they involve this important community sector. The CAPT will also share resources and tools on building collaboration and partnerships at the community level.
