On Thursday, July 19, Portsmouth Public Library will host Ask A Person in Recovery Anything. Join our diverse group of panelists to ask anything of folks in recovery from substance use! No topic is off limits. The Seacoast community will have an opportunity to engage in a respectful, moderated conversation with their neighbors in recovery.

Panelists will speak from personal experience and answer questions about recovery, identity, stigma, family, discrimination, advocacy and health. They will represent a variety of backgrounds, experiences, and models for recovery. Open to all!

Ask a Person in Recovery anything will be moderated by Vanessa Levin, MCP. Vanessa is a Master's Level Counseling Psychologist with Addiction Recovery Services in Portsmouth.
