Minnesota Second Chance Coalition
Presenters from the Minnesota Recovery Connection will be discussing tools and techniques for Relapse Prevention learned through working with participants moving through the Hennepin County Model Drug Court. Each of the four presenters will address skills necessary to work with an individual in the community who has been successful in their recovery but may be at risk for a 'set-back'.
