Issues of Substance Lecture Series

addiction team and support

On Friday, May 15th, the Jaywalker Solutions men and a few staff members volunteered for A Way Out, a non-profit organization in the Roaring Fork Valley that provides financial support to people who need treatment but do not have the resources.  The event, “Issues of Substance Lecture Series,” presented Dr. Michael Barnes, the Clinical Manager for CeDAR at the University of Colorado Hospital.  Dr. Barnes spoke about the chaotic life of living with an active addict or alcoholic and how this chaos is often experienced by the family as trauma which can interfere with the family’s or an individual’s well-being.  The Solutions men commandeered the registration table, helped participants sign in and receive name tags.  The men also were responsible for providing the documentation and certificates for anyone who wanted to received Continuing Educations Units.  Stay tuned because the Solutions service workers are on a roll!!

Coffee and Community for a Cause

Jaywalker would be nothing without the Carbondale Community , which has looked us in the eye, embraced us, and given us a second chance.” Bobby Ferguson, Founder of Jaywalker Lodge.” Second Chances ! Without them, most of us in the Recovery community would be lost or worse. Bobby Ferguson’s second chance resulted in Jaywalker Lodge, which has been helping alcoholics and addicts realize theirs for the last nine years here in Carbondale. Bobby’s vision for Boomerang Coffee Company ( formerly the Blend) is multi-faceted. Boomerang will provide employment opportunities for clients, alumni, and others in the community. Those in recovery will have another safe place to socialize and integrate into the community. Finally, all net profits from Boomerang will support the efforts of A Way Out, an Aspen based non-profit which provides a “Hand-Up” to addicts in need. Executive Director, Liz Means, and several board members were on hand Thursday…
