We invite you to participate in a Recovery Simulation on April 20 at 1 PM at Easy Does It, Inc in Leesport. Fill out the form below to volunteer or participate.

What is a Recovery Simulation?

A Recovery Simulation is an event that helps participants experience and better understand the many challenges faced by those in early recovery from substance use disorder.

How it Works?

  • It is a three-hour event involving about 40 participants
  • Participants are given a “Life Card” representing a person in early recovery.
  • They must then complete all the tasks on the card by visiting tables manned by volunteers.
  • Tasks may include: Appearing in court, meeting with a probation officer, applying for social services, visiting a career center, working odd jobs, borrowing money, relying on public transportation, etc.
  • Following the simulation, participants will have the opportunity to discuss their experiences.

Who Should Attend?

  • Criminal justice and human services professionals
  • Educators and school administrators
  • College students in a related field
  • Legislators and faith-based leaders
  • Anyone wishing to understand the challenges of early recovery

Description
Sometimes, estate planning involves protecting our beneficiaries either from themselves, future creditors or protecting them so that they do not lose any government benefits that they would be receiving at the time they would inherit. An effective way to offer this protection is through a special needs trust. In this training you will learn how to protect those with disabilities to ensure they do not lose any support or benefits when their caretaker dies.
