About this Event

Join us for our quarterly full coalition meeting as we learn about current and upcoming collaborative efforts to create a recovery oriented system of care in hopes of bolstering our primary prevention efforts.

Our new director, Joe Shakour, will cast a vision for the coalition for the upcoming year and introduce volunteer and involvement opportunities.

Our guest speaker will be Troy Manns who is the Statewide Manager of Advocacy and Education at Recovery Communities of North Carolina.

Troy has over 17 years’ experience in working to galvanize people and systems toward supporting long term recovery initiatives. He has extensive experience in working as a Certified Peer Support Specialist, Substance Use Disorder Specialist, Recovery Advocate, a CSAC-I, Trainer, Facilitator, Program Developer, Public Speaker and Change Strategist. He also serves on the North Carolina Commission for Mental Health, Developmental Disabilities, and Substance Abuse Services.

Troy is highly recognized in the addiction and recovery fields and spends his life working to remove barriers to recovery for people with Substance Use Disorders. He supports their family members and works to educate those in high places to understand the impact of both addiction and recovery on individuals, families, communities, society and the workplace.

His brainchild, “Foundations for Hope (f4H)” facilitated at the Orange County Detention Center and partnering with “Josh’s Hope Foundation” speaks to Troy’s ability to convince state and local decision makers including the Orange County Sheriff’s Department, Judges, Recovery Court personnel and other State officials that those with substance use disorders can and do recover.

Prior to coming to RCNC, Troy served as Co-Director of Paths to Recovery Community Center (a program of Freedom House Recovery Center in Chapel Hill, NC). His previous experience also included working in the areas of Outreach and Advocacy for Oxford House and as Coordinator of Healthcare at Freedom House. He also served as the Director of Recidivism Reduction Services that helped people re-entering from prison learn new life skills to keep them from returning to prison.

Troy has trained two of the Recovery Coach Academy classes in Wilson County and is known and respected by those who have completed the program. Come hear about prevention and recovery from a personal and professional perspective!
