FOR-DO’s The Turning Point is located just down the street from Bushel (next door to Bushel’s old space!), Standing for “Friends of Recovery of Delaware and Otsego [Counties]”, FOR-DO affirms the power and possibility of recovery and accomplishes its mission by:
- Providing education and awareness activities in an effort to reduce stigma and discrimination related to Substance Use Disorder.
- Advocating for legislation and services that support recovery from a Substance Use Disorder
- Operating community recovery centers for those in recovery from Substance Use Disorders and their families, thereby improving quality of life, reducing the risk of relapse, and assisting the development of a sustained recovery through the provision of peer-based support, life skills education and other programs, social activities, informational resources and a place for mutual support meetings
Many of the workshops and programs — including writing workshops, open mic, book club, and meditation — are open to all members of the public whether or not they are participating in the center’s recovery-specific services.
They also offer NARCAN training for opioid overdose prevention, in-person or on Zoom.
