Drug-Free Workplace Training held at old Crockett Theatre for local Employers
The City of Lawrenceburg, Chamber of Commerce and the Lawrence County Substance Abuse Coalition teamed up to provide a free Drug-Free Workplace Training for local employers on March 14, 15 and 16.
Over 500 people attended and many companies took advantage of this valuable training. John Mabry from Addiction Campuses brought a powerful story,sharing his road to recovery along with the training. Supervisors and employees took home information on signs and symptoms of abuse and literature was provided on how to seek help if someone is struggling with addiction.
The overarching message was, "It's okay to not be okay, recognize you need help and freedom starts with the first steps." John shared statistics, and dispelled myths on having a Drug-Free Workplace program.
If you know of someone who needs treatment, encourage them to get help. The first step has to be their own, but encouragement is important. We want to provide support and community around those that need to heal and reduce the stigma of addiction.
If someone needs help with addiction, resources for recovery include Addiction Campuses at 1-888-816-8415, Tennessee Redline at 1-800-889-9789 or Project Lifeline 931-308-7689 both funded by the Tennessee Department of Mental Health and Substance Abuse Services.
There are many local support groups including Celebrate Recovery, AA, NA, Al-Anon. For local contacts and meeting times, visit the website (http://lawrencecountytn.gov) and click on Residents/Lawrence County Substance Abuse Coalition.
