October 2021 – On October 25th, Governor Doug Burgum and First Lady Kathryn Burgum hosted the fifth annual Recovery Reinvented event, a daylong in-person and online event focused on reinventing recovery through eliminating the stigma of addiction. The governor and first lady emphasized the importance of sharing individual stories of people’s journeys from addiction to recovery, creating recovery-friendly cultures in the workplace and community and eliminating stigma by getting involved in advocacy. Three RRI resident staff had the opportunity and courage to share their stories on recovery. Also, RRI made name badges and challenge coins to be given to those in attendance.
