The CARES/ROSC Workshop is an excellent opportunity for potential CARES to learn more about peer recovery support services, and how they fit into a Recovery-Oriented System of Care (and what a recovery-oriented system of care is). This workshop will assist applicants through the application process, and helps them decide if the CARES Academy is something they are interested in pursuing.
In addition to information about Recovery Oriented Systems of Care, the workshop provides practical skills in applying for the Academy, including a review of writing samples, and a mock group interview (with feedback from the facilitator).
The event, is an annual run/walk supporting students in recovery from addictions and eating disorders and is hosted by Health Promotion and Wellness at Kennesaw State University and support “the positive message that behavioral health is essential to overall health, that prevention works, treatment is effective and people can and do recover” (Substance Abuse and Mental Health Services Administration) Recovery flyers will be taped inside the frisbee and given to students at fairs and various tabling events held during the Week of Welcome. T-shirts will be given to runners/walkers who participate. Race medals will be awarded to top finishers in each race category.
For those interested in running, they can register online here.
