Drug Addiction Counseling for the Community

Livengrin is a non-profit, mission based organization. Our staff and alumni volunteers participate in a variety of activities to educate communities on alcohol and drug abuse. We routinely offer our expertise in a range of venues throughout neighborhoods, faith-based organizations, and other non-profits.

Education Services

Livengrin Foundation Community Education

Livengrin Foundation is a non-profit foundation working to make sustainable recovery possible through professional, accessible, and successful treatment options. This work includes providing community support and education for disease prevention and early intervention. Some areas of support are listed below, although Livengrin is always willing to discuss designing custom presentations or interventions.

Prevention Education and Community Support

Livengrin provides a number of support talks around issues of drug and alcohol use/abuse:

  • Skill building and support presentations for faculty, parents and/or the community
  • Student presentations done in small group skill building and information sessions or in facility-wide assembly format
  • Concern Support and Targeted Education

When teachers, social workers, or administrators have a specific concern about a student or group of students, Livengrin can provide education, skill building/workshop groups, or support sessions targeting:

  • Concern about drug and/or alcohol use in a particular grade or class
  • Sentinel event in the community linked to drug or alcohol use (expulsion, legal involvement, or mortality)
  • Event linked to risky behavior in the community such as homecoming, holidays, or prom

Skill Building and Healthy Living Support Education

Livengrin offers additional educational support on issues linked to increased resiliency and healthy living such as dealing with stress, healthy relationships, assertive communication, and other topics.

We also host our own fun community events at little or no charge. These include the annual Livengrin Ride for Recovery and Back to Livengrin Day at our beautiful 44-acre Bucks County campus. Also, our new 120-seat community building is available to host interested groups.

Please reach out to our marketing team to let us know how we can support your efforts to help battle addiction in our community.

Request a seminar or have a speaker come to your location.

Support: Livengrin has been giving back to the community for 50 years.

Education: Livengrin advises communities about drug/alcohol awareness training.

Volunteerism: Part of recovery is service to the sober community.

Livengrin Council

The Livengrin Council is a working group made up of alumni and families with patients in recovery. Participants commit to a 12-month term during which they share their stories in workshops, panels, and other Livengrin sponsored events.

At Livengrin we know that if we are to design services and provide programs for recovering addicts, it is vital that we consider the input and expertise the participants and others affected by the disease of addiction can bring to the planning process. In creating the Livengrin Council we follow the premise of all 12-step recovery programs: sharing experience, strength, and hope with others to promote healing.

What does the Livengrin Council do?

  • Take part in monthly meetings to develop content for events
  • Practice event using role-playing
  • Participate in quarterly Livengrin Marketing events including:
    • Recovery panels at area high schools and colleges
    • Community workshops led by Livengrin clinicians
    • Livengrin webinars
  • Provide feedback to Livengrin for evaluation of effectiveness and outcomes of events
  • Act as Livengrin “Ambassadors” in the community and identify relative trends or concerns
