Juvenile Advisory Council

Our Juvenile Advisory Council had a meeting and a team building event last month and they continue to work on creating opportunities for youth in the juvenile justice system to be successful.  We held our meeting at Five Senses Escape Room in Novi and hands down we all had a blast and competed against each other to solve the starships problems to survive in space. Everyone worked together and solved each problem and made it out alive!! Five Senses is highly recommended.

Peer Recovery Coaches at Local High Schools

Growth Works Peer Recovery Coaches, Sarah and Cole, partnered up with Northwest Wayne FAN to share stories of struggle and hope with students at Plymouth-Canton Community Schools.

Growth Works and FAN have resources for individuals and families struggling with substance use. We want to ensure community members are familiar with the resources and can easily access them in their time of need. We want to thank our incredible Peer Recovery Coaches and our Partners at Families Against Narcotics for helping bring a message of Hope to those in need.

If you want to learn about Peer Recovery Coaching or would like to request a Peer Recovery Coach to speak to your organization or school, please contact us today!
