Transitions' Partnering With Newly Founded Community Recovery Club for 2K "Recovery Walk and Fun Run" Sept. 22nd

Transitions is excited to share developments about the newly founded Oasis Community Recovery Club being launched in Shamokin. The club, promoted as an organization "dedicated to supporting individuals and their families dealing with drug addiction and recovery," is launching in the Coal Region of Northumberland County to provide services and create a safe place for people to gather with a focus on long-term, healthy recovery from addiction.
The center -- which hopes to host various 12-step meetings, family-friendly events, as well as Transitions' educational programming (and other programming from a multitude of other community partners) -- will be hosting a kickoff event in Shamokin on Sunday, September 22 at 1 p.m. at the Fairview Gun Club near the Shamokin Area School Grounds.
We are proud to be an in-kind sponsor for the event along with other local businesses and community organizations, and Transitions' is long committed to helping create a safer, healthier community in the lower Northumberland County region.

Green Dot Training


Susquehanna University teamed up with Transitions to get trained on Alteristic's Green Dot Programming specifically for college campuses!

From the website, "Traditional prevention programs may only approach men as potential perpetrators and women as potential victims. Green Dot approaches all students, staff, administrators, and faculty as allies. The original Green Dot program was conceived in the college setting to prevent dating violence, sexual violence, and stalking.
It relies on the premise that if everyone does their small part and commits to individual responsibility, the combined effect is a safe campus culture that is intolerant of violence."

We at Transitions are very excited to team up with Susquehanna University's VIP Center to implement Green Dot campus-wide!
