Telling stories of recovery
PUTNEY — The next Fables session, a monthly story telling program at Next Stage Theater, will tackle stories of recovery.
The Wednesday, August 14, Fables will be a part of the ongoing conversation around the addiction crisis. The doors open at 6:30 p.m. and the program begins at 7 p.m. After all the stories are told there will be an open forum for discussion which will be host by Fish who Emcee's the event as well as curates Fables. The point of the forum is to continue the conversation about addiction and create a better understanding of the disease and hopefully break down the stigma around it.
There will be counselors on hand from Turning Point of Windham County during the forum to answer questions as well. The mission of Turning Point of Windham County is to provide a safe, supportive gathering place for all whose lives have been affected by addictions and are seeking to begin or strength their individual path in recovery. The organization is an inclusive center offering peer support, education, meeting space, and resource options, as well as opportunities to socialize, serve, and grow.
Telling stories of Recovery that evening will be Sara Moses, Darlene Derby, Justin Johnston & Paul McMahon. All of them have been through the Turning Point Program and rely on their services every day. Next Stage is located at 15 Kimball Hill.
