Independent Living welcomes self-help program run by recovered addicts to Niagara County


Fri, Nov 10th 2017 05:50 pm
Independent Living of Niagara County (ILNC) is holding a celebration of ADDICT 2 ADDICT Niagara (A2A Niagara) and the expansion of the program to the region by inviting the public to a free "Recovery Rocks" welcoming event. The event will take place from 11 a.m. until 2 p.m. Saturday Nov. 11, at the ILNC offices in the Haeberle Plaza, 746 Portage Road, north of Pine Avenue, in Niagara Falls.
Participants are invited to express their creativity and paint rocks with pleasant designs or messages containing vital information. Afterward, participants can take the rocks with them or ILNC will place them in the community. The opportunity is for others to find these rocks, and then hide them again, thus spreading the messages of hope and recovery through the community.
Refreshments will be served.
This effort differs from other opioid crisis outreaches, in that A2A Niagara has recruited recovering addicts to offer help to still-struggling addicts who have decided they want to work toward their own recovery.
ILNC has established an A2A Niagara hotline for Niagara County, 716-398-4333. Calls for assistance will be answered in 24 hours or less.
For more information on the Addict 2 Addict Niagara program, or on the welcoming event, contact Shannon Veiders at 716-284-4131, ext. 232.
Independent Living of Niagara County is a member of the Western New York Independent Living Inc. family of agencies that offer an expanding array of services to aid individuals with disabilities to take control of their own lives.
