BISMARCK, N.D. — Gov. Doug Burgum and first lady Kathryn Helgaas Burgum have announced a fall event aimed at discussing innovative ways to improve addiction recovery and treatment.
The daylong “Recovery Reinvented” event Sept. 26 at the Bismarck Event Center will bring together state and national recovery experts for discussions with addiction recovery advocates, health care providers, business and community leaders, faith-based organizations, law enforcement officers, tribal officials and others.
Helgaas Burgum has said she’s a recovering alcoholic and wants to use her experience to help others. Burgum is donating his governor’s salary to addiction recovery and treatment initiatives, but the Recovery Reinvented event is not being funded through that effort.
