SBVC, San Bernardino County Department of Behavioral Health Join Forces to Present Finding Our Way

In a first of its kind collaboration, the San Bernardino County Department of Behavioral Health (DBH) and San Bernardino Valley College came together on Sept. 12 to present Finding Our Way, a play about the cycle of addiction and the path to recovery, written by inmates at the Richard J. Donovan Correctional Facility.  
The performance was held in the SBVC Auditorium, and before the show, SBVC theater students gave a 15-minute presentation on substance abuse and healthy alternatives to drugs and alcohol. Afterward, the performers and DBH subject matter experts participated in a question and answer session with the audience.  
Finding Our Way was presented as part of National Recovery Month, now in its 30th year. "Substance use disorders affect people of all ethnicities, ages, genders, and socioeconomic levels," DHB Director Dr. Veronica Kelley said. "Our communities and youth play a significant role in supporting friends and family through their recovery. We are thankful for partners like SBVC for providing a platform where youth, students, and emerging leaders can come together to learn more about and discuss this important topic."
