On Thursday, June 2, Recovery Month hosted their first #RecoveryChat on Twitter focusing on the topic of prevention and early intervention. Fran Harding, SAMHSA’s Director of the Center for Substance Abuse Prevention, joined Recovery Month (@RecoveryMonth) to provide expertise and answer questions. Fran previously answered your questions about Alcohol Awareness Month as part of our Ask SAMHSA series.
The chat had a great turnout with more than 25 people contributing to the conversation and sharing comments with their followers. The conversation focused on parents talking to youth about alcohol and substance use prevention, programs and activities for prevention, and how to help friends and loved ones with substance use and mental disorders.
If you missed the chat, you can read a full transcript of the conversation on the Recovery Month website. Do you have more questions about prevention and early intervention that weren’t answered? Please leave a comment and we will do our best to answer your questions.
