Reflecting on Paulo Coelho's words: "Life has many ways of testing a person’s will, either by having nothing happen at all or by having everything happen all at once." 🌟

In recovery, these tests come in many forms. Whatever you face today, whether calm or chaos, remember that you have the resilience to overcome. Stay strong and connected! 💪🌍

Support Needed for Our Recovery Community

Our Interim Executive Director, Matt McLane, has addressed crucial concerns to the legislative committee. We need your support on two important issues:

Extended Certification Timeline: We're advocating to extend the deadline for certification of recovery organizations to January 1, 2026. The current January 1, 2025 deadline is too soon, given the existing delays in the certification process.

Freedom to Work Independently: We oppose changes that would prevent Peer Recovery Specialists from choosing to work as independent contractors. Everyone deserves the right to choose what works best for their life circumstances.

Attention all advocates for Substance Use Disorder (SUD) recovery!
Recently, we learned SUD Peer Recovery Specialists convened at the Minnesota Capitol to oppose legislation that prohibits ALL Peer Recovery Specialists from working as an independent contractor/1099.

These Peers stressed the importance of retaining their right to choose whether to work as an independent contractor or not. This bill, HF 4392, prohibits ALL Peers to decide for themselves whether they want to be an employee or independent contractor.

These Peer Recovery Specialists embody hope and resilience within our community. Let's rally behind them to ensure that individuals in recovery have work options they need to thrive.

Stay tuned for updates on their impactful discussions at the Capitol! Together, we can drive positive change for those affected by SUD.

🌟 Support Minnesota’s Recovery Heroes 🌟

In Minnesota, peer recovery specialists offer essential support in the fight against addiction. But legislative changes could limit their ability to help. We must act to ensure these lifelines can continue their crucial work. Join us in safeguarding our community's path to recovery.

Today, we're pausing to reflect on a powerful thought that guides our work: "Recovery isn't a one-time thing, it's a lifelong journey."
