Education for Your Town or Group
The Turning Point Center Speakers Bureau brings addiction, recovery and prevention presentations to communities around Chittenden County. Turning Point staff and members of the board of directors are available to speak at local libraries, schools, health organizations, youth centers, senior centers, and other places in the community.
One in three families in our communities is affected by addiction in some way — alcoholism, cocaine addiction, drug addiction, food addiction, gambling, heroin, marijuana, meth, nicotine, prescription drugs, shopping, and dual diagnosis (a mental health condition plus a substance abuse problem) — either your own home or one of your neighbor’s on either side will be touched in some way.
We offer two general types of programs, which can be tailored to meet your group’s membership and interests:
- Types of Addiction, Identifying and Preventing Addiction
- Paths to Recovery for Individuals and Families
All programs afford opportunity for discussion.
Whether you want to learn about danger signs for teenagers, prescription drug abuse and the elderly, or veterans and dual diagnosis, the Turning Point Center Speakers Bureau lets you bring an informative and inspiring program to your community.
