So we had a small but quite lovely gathering of some of our 2017 MAAT members at our annual holiday gathering and art gift exchange! Much food, networking and observing dogs on Christmas outfits was accomplished. Congratulations to Angie Bolton as she was voted in to fill a chair position, Community Outreach, aka “public relations”. We are looking forward to having 2018 be as successful as this year and keep any eye our for our next meeting (February of 2018). ... See MoreSee Less

There will be a community workshop, Creativity and Recovery, on Wednesday December 13, 2017 from 6:30-8:00 p.m.
Meridian Health Services’ art therapist, Jennifer Tackett, M.Ed. ATR DP-C, will present on the benefits of creativity, personal expression and the use of arts in the recovery process.

Jennifer recently had the opportunity to complete the level one course for trauma-informed expressive arts certification where she learned the essential practices of utilizing the arts to enhance resilience, support self-regulation, and reduce stress responses to trauma and loss.

This workshop is free and open to the public to reduce stigma about addiction, increase awareness, and improve education.
