    1. NC Governor Cooper Visits Healing Transitions

      February 20th, 2018Healing Transitions Men’s Campus – We were honored to have Governor Roy Cooper visit and tour our men’s campus Tuesday. He spent over an hour with us and learned everything about our program and how Healing Transitions helps individuals find recovery. He also had the opportunity to hear inspiring recovery stories from participants and staff.

      When speaking with our Clinic and Health Services Coordinator, Kathy Thomas, she shared that he took the extra time and effort to not only understand the program at Healing Transitions but to also understand the recovery process. “I let him know that I am celebrating over 20 years of recovery and he asked a bunch of questions. He was genuinely interested in my story and my recovery.”

      From all of the staff and participants we would like to thank Governor Cooper for taking the time to visit our campus and for his support of recovery. View the photo slideshow below to follow along with Governor Cooper on his tour of Healing Transitions.
