CADTP is Conducting a Special Survey on Health Equity with a Focus on BIPOC and 2S/LGBTQ+
Win one of 100-$30 gift cards for completing the survey by February 27, 2023
CADTP is partnering with the Sierra Health Foundation, Health Management Associates, and other partners for the HEAR US project.

The overarching goal of the project is to increase the number and quality of culturally responsive behavioral health recovery services and programs statewide that are tailored to local needs.

The project will implement a community-driven process that will develop “standards of care” that build on the SAMSHA guidance for recovery services and address gaps in services and supports.

Of particular interest are peer-led programming and consistency with a focus on higher quality of care for those engaged in recovery services, with a focus on traditionally underserved populations including Black, Indigenous, People of Color (BIPOC) and the 2S/LGBTQ+
Your voice is valuable to the outcome of this project!

Take the survey by 2/27/23 to be eligible for one of 100-$30 gift cards! (We really want to hear from you!)

Winners will be selected and notified by email on March 20, 2022.

One entry per person.

How HeartMath Can Support Addiction Recovery
HeartMath will be a presenter at the CADTP Spring Conference!
Access a FREE HeartMath Video Course here: HeartMath Video Course
HeartMath is a stress management technique that involves using heart rate variability biofeedback and breathing techniques to regulate emotions and reduce stress.

While it may not directly treat addiction, reducing stress and managing emotions can be an important component of recovery for some individuals who struggle with addiction. It is important to note that HeartMath should not be used as a substitute for evidence-based treatment for addiction, such as behavioral therapy and medication management, but rather as a complementary approach.

Black History Month
Why Celebrating Black History Month Is Important For The Society We Live In
Celebrating Black History Month is an important way to honor the history and achievements of Americans. It is an opportunity to recognize the contributions of individuals, communities, and organizations that have worked to create a more just, equitable, and inclusive society.

By recognizing the unique contributions of African Americans, we can create a better understanding of our shared history and encourage a deeper appreciation and understanding of the diversity of our society.

Black History Month was first celebrated in February 1979 by the Association for the Study of African American Life and History. The month-long celebration is an opportunity to celebrate the rich heritage and culture of African Americans. Many communities celebrate Black history Month with African American cultural exhibits, festivals, and activities. Check out the article, How to Honor Black History Month in California.

Did You Know?
February is American Heart Month
February is American Heart Month, a time when all people can focus on their cardiovascular health.

This Heart Month the Division for Heart Disease and Stroke Prevention is expanding the reach of the Million Hearts® and CDC Foundation’s “Live to the Beat” campaign, which focuses on encouraging and empowering Black adults ages 35 to 54 to take small steps to reduce their risks for cardiovascular disease (CVD).

CVD and CVD mortality are increasing in working-age adults, and Black adults are among those bearing the highest burden, particularly in the United States.

The CDC encourages individuals, health care and public health professionals, and our partners to help close the disparities gap.
