Uprooting Addiction: Healing From the Ground Up by Voices of Hope

April 27, 2023 - April 28, 2023

Voices of Hope has two exciting events coming up as well as a new schedule featuring recovery support, meditation and yoga! see attached.

We are also hosting two free  events in April. The first is a film showing and discussion, Uprooting Addiction: Healing From the Ground Up, on Thursday, April 27th at 5:30 at 1 School Street, OSCC building in Wilmington. The film makers will be present to share an innovative retreat where addiction and trauma counselor Hope Payson (LCSW, LADC), six people (including Daryl McGraw) from varying walks of life — each affected by childhood trauma — come together to share their stories, emerging from darkness through community, connection, and compassion. All are welcome to this important film about trauma, addiction and recovery. Film makers will be present and snacks will be provided.

On Friday, April 28th from 9-12:00, Voices will host a free workshop and lunch. The workshop will explore the interpersonal, cultural, and traumatic roots of addiction including intergenerational trauma, oppression, racism, and stigma. Learn how addiction and trauma impact the brain and how trauma informed interventions and addressing roots of addiction can support recovery. Lunch is provided and RSVP are requested in advance at voicesofhopevt@gmail.com . The workshop will be held at 18 Beaver Street, Wilmington (Old Firehouse). For more information, visit our resources page at: https://www.voicesofhopevt.org/ or contact Voices at (802) 490-3316.
