The official Proclamation Ceremony for National Recovery Day in Brooklyn was held on September 30, 2014 in the rotunda of Brooklyn Borough Hall. Pastor Gilford Monrose, Director of Faith-Based & Clergy Initiatives of the Office of the Borough President and Brooklyn Borough President Eric L. Adams presented the Proclamation to the Brooklyn Recovery Group, with Patricia Wooldridge of the Brooklyn Community Recovery Center accepting with the group. The Brooklyn Recovery Group is made up of the following organizations: the Brooklyn Community Recovery Center, The Resource Training Center, Spirit of a Woman Leadership Development Institute, Stroman & Skinner Training and Consulting Associates, Reverend Eugene Mitchell, Greater Allen AME Church, Tauheed Center for Human Excellence, Living Positive, Flournoy Consultations, Greenwich Village Youth Council, Center for NuLeadership, and JACS/JBFCS.
The Brooklyn Recovery Group is a collective of persons in recovery, service providers, and community stakeholders committed to transforming the face of recovery in Brooklyn and the surrounding boroughs. All are members of the New York Supports Opportunities for Accessing Recovery Services (NY SOARS) initiative of the New York Office of Alcoholism and Substance Abuse Services (OASAS) and the Research Foundation for Mental Hygiene (RFMH). Congratulations to everyone for the spirited support of empowering the community to healthy recovery.
