The Bermuda Hospitals Board [BHB] will be holding a free virtual panel by the Turning Point Substance Abuse Programme tomorrow [Sept 30] on the subject of recovery from substance abuse.

A spokesperson said, “BHB announces a free virtual panel being offered to the community as part of Recovery Month by the Turning Point Substance Abuse Programme. The theme is ‘Recovery is for everyone: every person, every family, every community’, and the discussion will be on Thursday, 30 September from 1.00pm to 2.00pm.

“The goal is to share wisdom, experiences and insight to inspire and encourage people in Bermuda who have loved ones or are themselves on the journey of recovery.

“Hosted by Dayla Burges, Addiction Counsellor at Turning Point, the panel members are Juanae Crockwell, holistic counsellor of ‘A Little Girl Grows Up’; Shervin Hollis, recovery advocate; Gordon Johnson, community recovery advocate; and Michaela Smith, certified fitness instructor of Hope Fitness Bermuda.”

Shirley Place, clinical director of substance abuse at MWI, said, “We want to offer to the community an opportunity to hear from people who can help support and inspire anyone with an interest in substance abuse recovery.

“We all have a part to play, whether we have an addiction, or it is a loved one or friend. Recovery needs community support and understanding. Having an open panel allows us all to learn, be encouraged and have their questions about substance abuse recover answered.”

The spokesperson said, “People can attend via Zoom meeting ID 894 045 3622 at 1.00pm on Thursday, 30 September, or go to the BHB Facebook page for a live stream. There will be set questions for the panel at the start, and a segment for attendees to ask questions too.”
