Community Effort Addressing Community Problems

2012 Coming Together

Coming Together 2015 is a collaboration between Community Healing Centers and the Specialty Program in Alcohol and Drug Abuse at Western Michigan University. 

We hope to reduce the stigma associated with treatment and recovery, while facilitating conversation and partnerships with a variety of community organizations.

We will raise awareness of the programs and outreach services available in the community for those children, families, and individuals struggling in the shadows of addiction.

The conference will provide the latest information, tools, and knowledge in the treatment field. Professionals from medicine, law, social work, and education will be joined by outstanding national experts and spokespersons in a full day of presentations and workshops.
