Thanks to Jessica Estok, Substance Abuse Counselor at the University of Delaware, for coming to TRIAD on Tuesday, December 4 to speak for us. Her topic was Recovery on a College Campus and the presentation was fascinating. It was incredible to learn just how much substance abuse occurs at college, and what the severe ramifications of it are. The University of Delaware does have some valuable resources available to students who are struggling with addiction.

Giving Tuesday is a international day of charitable giving that plays on the theme of Thanksgiving and counters the consumerism of Black Friday and Cyber Monday. It is a day to be grateful for our many blessings and to support a worthy cause. This Giving Tuesday we would like to encourage you to donate to TRIAD as part of your year end giving. Please go to our Facebook page at www.facebook.com/TRIADHELP to donate to our Giving Tuesday fundraiser. Thank you in advance for your support!
TRIAD was recently invited to exhibit at the NAMI annual conference in Dover. NAMI is the National Association of Mental Illness. There were several hundred people in attendance, giving TRIAD a lot of exposure.
Addiction and mental illness are often co-occurring and the education topics at the conference were very informative. These topics included Relapse Prevention, Trauma and Substance Abuse Disorders, Legislative Advocacy and education for Law Enforcement.
We look forward to continuing our partnership with NAMI.
On Wednesday of this week TRIAD was featured on the Rick Jensen show on WDEL. Gillian Timon, Executive Director, one of our counselors, Mallory Giles, and one of our clients, Daimon Franklin, were interviewed by Rick for an hour! We were able to share about TRIAD’s mission and services. Rick was particularly interested in Daimon’s personal of addiction and recovery, and the value he has received from his counseling here at TRIAD. You can hear the whole segment here.

TRIAD has been very instrumental in my recovery. The counselors share their inner wealth of knowledge on the pitfalls of this potentially fatal disease. They remind us that we can conquer it and proceed with full contentment in life - and that we deserve it!Richard
I love how much TRIAD puts the time in for help I need. This has saved my life not once but more than that. My counselor has been there for me since day one and is still there for me.
I want everyone to know how grateful I am for her and the rest of the team at TRIAD
