Conversations for Change

By Jan Lepore-Jentleson, Executive Director

WestCare Ohio/East End Community Services and our Peers for Change team of certified Addiction Recovery Peer Supporters conducts the ‘Conversations for Change’ event every other month in Dayton for persons struggling with drug abuse and recovery. The ‘Conversations’ include a healthy meal, a motivational speaker with lived experience, group discussions about long and short-term goal setting, training and distribution of free Naloxone, HIV and HEP-C testing, and information sharing about treatment, and records expungement through the Public Defender’s office. This months’ Conversation attracted 59 attendees from Dayton’s north side. Eighteen agencies that provide treatment or other recovery resources also made themselves available to answer questions and set up appointments.
