County Commissioners Proclaim Recovery-Friendly Taos
The Taos County Commissioners have added their support to the Recovery-Friendly Taos movement! The Summit Report was presented to them, organizers gave testimony, and the board decided “This is worth doing!”
In addition to supporting the entire concept of building a recovery-friendly community in all areas, they focused on specific areas where the support of local government is important, and meaningful: building a crisis response system, and building a continuum of care.
