BLOOMFIELD (September 25, 2019) – With the help of the residents, Touchpoints at Bloomfield celebrated National Recovery Month by putting together a resident-led information table about Recovery Month in the front lobby.
The center’s iRecovery Counselor Janice Lapage provided the team with information to distribute to staff, visitors and family members. She also ran a discussion group for our residents and staff. Most did not know the stigma that is carried by others that suffer from mental illness and/or substance use disorder.
Finally, the recreation department had a” Take the Pledge Party!” Ramblin’ Dan Steeves performed while cake and popcorn was served. Staff and residents signed the “Take the Pledge” board and received purple bracelets. Some shared stories and celebrated the struggles and successes of being in recovery.
