The Journey Series is a free 6-week virtual learning series on Addiction & Recovery beginning September 3rd through October 8th on Thursdays at 2:30 PM and 3:35 PM CT. Over the course of The Journey Series, you will hear from various experts in the field. Scroll down for more information, to register, and watch recordings of sessions.
The virtual learning series, historically known as The Journey Day, has been hosted in Jefferson County by the Recovery Ministries of the Episcopal Diocese of Alabama. Recognizing the significant impact the opioid epidemic had on Walker County, the Recovery Ministries graciously partnered with the Walker Co. Health Action Partnership to bring an invaluable learning opportunity to Walker County. Then the Covid-19 pandemic required us to adapt our plans, resulting in a stellar 6-week virtual learning series available to an even bigger audience - The Journey Series. We hope you'll join us in this learning journey!
CONTINUING EDUCATION CONTACT HOURS AVAILABLE
Eligible sessions for nurses, social workers, LPCs continuing education contact hours are marked with an * by the session name. Please know that you can only receive contact hours if you attend the live session.
THANK YOU TO OUR PARTNERS!
The Journey Series would not have been possible without the collaboration & support of our partners.

This event would not have been possible without the collaboration & support of all of our partners. We would like to extend a special thanks to:

Bradford Health Services, Inc. for overseeing continuing education contact hours and making the transition to the virtual Journey Series seamless by managing the Zoom Webinar platform for all sessions;
Addiction Prevention Coalition and Jennifer Campbell of Jennifer Campbell Consulting for Journey Series graphics;
Walker Area Community Foundation for allowing intern Laynie Snyder to coordinate event planning during her summer internship through the Jean O'Connor-Snyder Internship Program. Laynie managed program development, scheduling, and created the Journey Series website;
