Top 10 Reasons to Register for the FARR Annual Conference

Written by:

at July 21, 2014

1. If Recovery Residences don’t demonstrate that we have successfully organized under the FARR umbrella, well-funded and highly organized NIMBY forces will kick our butts in the next legislative session.

2. We’re now beginning to set the agenda rather than simply react to those fueled by stigma and ignorance. This requires unity, solidarity and scale. Join us and help make a difference!

3. Responsible and ethical service providers within the recovery residence and IOP sectors must group together now so that all stakeholders can distinguish the “good guys” from the “bad guys”.

4. This is your trade association! Your voice and active participation matters. Sitting idly by, pointing fingers and lamenting the sad state of affairs isn’t going to change much, is it? Let’s get connected!

5. Those of us who are “fighting the good fight” on behalf of this sector need your support. Surely it’s not too much to ask for a one day & $95.00 commitment to support those who volunteer hundreds of their own?

6. Conference content is timely, on task and addresses important issues impacting all sectors along the care continuum. Together we can shape the future of ROSC here in Florida.

7. State legislators and local, municipal leaders are betting on their belief that as a group we’re too self-centered to gain organized momentum. Don’t let them gloat next session with a smug “told you so”.

8. FADAA represents the ‘managed entities” here in Florida. These are potential referral sources for many recovery residences. DAF, CARP, BARC, Henderson, New Horizons, Operation Par, Stewart Marchman to name but a few.

9. Aren’t most of us all about the value of peer-to-peer interactivity? This conference is a very real opportunity to network with your peers and engage in dialog concerning issues that directly impact the entire spectrum.

10. In the substance abuse treatment continuum, it all comes down to “reputation, reputation, reputation”. Florida has developed a national reputation as the Wild, Wild, West. Together, we become a force to restore our good name.

If you are interested in attending, you can register here. Get a conference schedule here and I hope to see you at my townhall discussion about the “Legal Challenges with Rent Assistance.”
