Sober Idaho Recovery Community Act: This Thursday night Darrell will be attending a legislative event in Boise for this bill from Representative Kingsley. The bill proposes a small tax on opioids sold in Idaho, with funds to be used on recovery related efforts, such as our center. Let your legislator know if you support this proposed bill.

Recovery Support in Rural and Frontier Communities

Several months ago I had the privilege of meeting William “Bill” White.  Some people consider him to be one of the fathers of the modern recovery movement.  He has been involved in the movement since the late 60s, and written hundreds of articles and books.  As we sat together, we discussed the lack of research on recovery in a rural environment.

My meeting with him culminated in this blog post by him, Katy Schmeer, Stacey Rosecrans, Randy Rosecrans and myself.

I hope you enjoy it.
