The National Association of Recovery Residences (NARR) will recognize Gary Enos, Editor of Addiction Professional, with an award during their annual Conference on Recovery Residences in May. Enos is being given this honor in recognition of his significant contributions to the field of recovery residences, specifically through reporting and sharing his industry expertise through print and online media channels and fostering the creation of NARR.
Beth Fisher, President of NARR, stated: “NARR and a National Standard for recovery residences—long needed in the field—became a reality in September 2011. Quite simply, we have Gary Enos to thank for that. He facilitated a ‘gathering place’ for recovery residence operators and stakeholders through the use of media…he brought to light a service niche that has long been under the radar—and introduced recovery residences to the industry. We have claimed a legitimate, professional space on the continuum of recovery services through his contributions—in short; he has facilitated significant, positive change for the entire field.”
The conference is being held in Washington D.C. at Donovan House from May 10-12, 2012. More information on this event can be found at http://www.narronline.com.
