Every Brain Matters Monthly Speakers Meeting – Pam Lanhart
Pam Lanhart is the founder and executive director of Thrive Family Recovery Resources, a non-profit that helps families nationally connect to resources, education, and support. Thrive became a ground-breaking organization this fall as one of the first Family Recovery Community Organizations in the country to receive State Human Services Grant Funding to support their work providing family peer support to those family members impacted by their loved one’s substance use. Pam is also a certified family recovery coach, certified peer recovery specialist, Invitation to Change and CRAFT practitioner, and Arise interventionist. Pam is also the 2021 recipient of the Faces & Voices Vernon Johnson Award, honoring her tenacious and outstanding national advocacy and work, devoted to spreading the message of recovery and harm reduction and helping families activate their recovery even after the loss of her son that same year. Most recently, she was appointed to serve on the MN Governor’s Task Force to address substance use in her state. Join us to hear how Pam Thrives through her personal loss and continues giving hope to others.
Join us on the first Friday of every month for messages of hope and healing from the impacts of marijuana. Every month, we welcome a different speaker to share their experience and provide pathways to serenity as we navigate through today’s pro-marijuana/drug culture. Whether you’re grieving the loss of a loved one or trying to recover yourself, this meeting is for you. You will be a Q & A at the end of each session. This meeting is appropriate for all family members ages 16 and up.

The expansion of marijuana is negatively affecting people in many ways: addiction, psychosis, suicide, homicide, DUI’s, Cannabinoid Hyperemesis Syndrome, and other incidents of injury or trauma resulting in harm or death, overdoses, and where marijuana was a gateway, companion, and/or relapse drug.
