30 in 30

Center for Family Life and Recovery, Inc. inviting individuals to a special introduction to a virtual support for those on the journey of recovery.

Utica, New York (February 2022) – Center for Family Life and Recovery, Inc. is launching a virtual event for individuals, family members, community members, and professionals in the Recovery Field on March 5th from 1-3pm. Three of the developers, Lureen McNeil, Kristopher Moses, and Ambi Daniel, Family Support Navigator at Center for Family Life & Recovery, will be hosting a guided tour of the resources available on oasas.ny.gov/30-in-30 and how to best use the site as an active resource. The 30 in 30 focuses on multiple pathways to recovery, video journal entries about real challenges and successes, written resources families can use, and information from some of the most influential subject matter experts in the field.

30 in 30 is a statewide effort. Addiction remains a serious threat to public health and well-being. Overdose deaths exceeded 100,000 in the 12 -month period ending in April 2021. This represents a 28 percent increase from the prior year. 1 Excessive alcohol use is responsible for 95,000 deaths each year or 261 deaths per day. 2 Additionally, it is estimated that only 11 percent of people who needed treatment in 2018, sought and received treatment. 3 The Change Theory, 4 is one way to understand substance use disorder. The theory says that people change through predictable stages that include Precontemplation, Contemplation, Decision, Action, and Maintenance. Especially for individuals in precontemplation or contemplation where it is important to inform, inspire and motivate individuals.

The Commission/Institute project elevates 30 voices of those in recovery every 30 days to help initiate recovery in those people in the pre-contemplative and contemplative phases by providing hope, information, resources, and support from real people who have all come about recovery in their own way.

Center for Family Life and Recovery, Inc. is proud to be a leader in creating a world where people have the power to achieve and celebrate recovery. CFLR supports individuals and families struggling with addiction, mental health, and behavioral issues by inspiring hope, providing help, promoting wellness, and transforming lives.
