As a member of the NE2SS’s Leadership Council and a someone with over 20 years of sobriety, Harlan Pruden participated on the special population panel as a representative of the Native American and the two-spirit community at “Aligning Concepts, Aligning Practice, Aligning Contexts – Building a Blueprint for Action,” this May 1-2 in Philadelphia sponsored by the Institute for Research, Education, and Training in Addictions (IRETA). It was a valuable opportunity to share his experience in recovery with nationally recognized recovery leaders and offer his input to bring about necessary change for the recovery community.
For both those who attended and those who missed it, the resources and presentations are now available online at IRETA’s website. You can also view a copy of Harlan Pruden’s PowerPoint presentation, Recovery Oriented Systems of Care from a Two-Spirit Perspective.
You can also watch the video taped presentations by visiting the IRETA homepage and clicking on the link to the Recovery Symposium under the “In the Spotlight” section. Please feel free to share this exciting resource with your colleagues.
