Tree Symbolizes Hope of Recovery From Addiction

The Council of Southeast Pennsylvania, Inc. and
 PRO-ACT hosted our 24th annual Tree of Hope dedication ceremony inside the Bucks County Courthouse lobby in Doylestown on Dec. 17.  

The event celebrated freedom from addiction; honored those successfully achieving recovery; dedicated hope to those still struggling; honored those working in the field; and commemorated the lives lost to the stigmatized, misunderstood disease.  Personalized ornaments, bearing the names or initials of people being honored, were hung on the 18-foot tree during the ceremony.  

Bucks County Court of Common Pleas Judge Rea B. Boylan was presented with the Ambassador of Recovery Award for her work helping to reduce the impact of addiction on the local community.  In addition, the Tom Nelson Award was given to volunteers Jennifer Seitzer of Quakertown, William McFaden of Doylestown, Elizabeth Tomaszewski of Levittown and Tom Kearns of Croyden. 

Your Support is Appreciated!

As a multi-county charity organization, The Council's reach extends throughout the five counties of Southeast Pennsylvania. Your annual support joins together professionals in the substance abuse and mental health field with individuals and families who have been impacted by addiction, trauma and other related health issues.

We have achieved great success this year, but there is still much work to be done.  Without your help, The Council and PRO-ACT can not continue to offer the high level of prevention, intervention, advocacy and recovery support services that are so desperately needed in our communities. 

Please remember to make your annual gift to support this life-saving work and help us continue making a real difference in the recovery community.
