On Thursday, October 3, 2019, GBCA, the American Society of Safety Professionals Philadelphia Chapter (ASSP), the Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA), and Med-Tex Services, Inc. came together to promote National Recovery Month. At job sites in Philadelphia, they educated local construction workers about how substance use treatment and mental health services can enable those with substance use disorders live a healthy and rewarding life.

The group gave Toolbox Talks about preventing, recognizing, and treating substance abuse. They also handed out high visibility gear, drawing attention to the 2019 theme:

Join the Voices for Recovery: Together We Are Stronger.

Two stops took place at the following locations:

New College House West, University of Pennsylvania
