By May 18, 2018Uncategorized

BISMARCK — The second Recovery Reinvented, the conference focused on battling addiction hosted by Gov. Doug Burgum and first lady Kathryn Helgaas Burgum, has been scheduled for Sept. 5 at the Fargo Civic Center.

Helgaas Burgum said Friday, May 11, the event will “give people the tools to eliminate stigma, promote advocacy and help establish a supportive culture around recovery in their communities.” The governor and first lady invited the general public to the daylong event, along with a range of stakeholders that included behavioral health providers, faith communities and first responders.

The event will be held the same week as the North Dakota Behavioral Health Conference, which will be hosted by the state Department of Human Services’ Behavioral Health Division in Fargo.

“These two events, jointly, provide an opportunity to continue driving change in North Dakota’s behavioral health system — putting focus on prevention, early intervention, treatment and recovery,” Pamela Sagness, director of the Behavioral Health Division, said in a statement.

Registration information will come later.
