Maricopa County saw 1,350 of its residents die of a drug overdose from June 2018 to May 2019. The county government points out, “The majority of the deaths involved opioids, methamphetamine, or alcohol.”
These deaths are preventable and A Better Today Recovery Services (ABTRS) is committed to saving as many people as possible. But they can’t do it alone. For that reason, they’re calling on you to join them for an evening of discussion, education, and networking.

During this event, you’ll have the opportunity to meet other members of the community, including Jorn LeBlanc. He’s the Director of Operations at ABTRS with a passionate perspective. “We feel a social responsibility to be a guiding light for our community on this issue. If you have been impacted by addiction or are a local addiction professional, this open house if for you,” he said.
ABTRS will take this opportunity to introduce their new Medical Director to the community. Dr. Nicki Rippeteau, M.D., shares a similar perspective with LeBlanc. Throughout her 30 years of practice, she’s had a passion for saving lives and healing families. She’s a great fit for ABTRS’s long-running mission of doing the same.
You’ll be able to hear from the Phoenix Police Department, as well. They’ll be sharing eye-opening information about how substance abuse and addiction impacts the area. In addition, an intervention specialist will be sharing his knowledge gained from 10 years of personal intervention experience.
Meet many of the support staff that are the foundation of treatment at ABTRS. Some of them have their own stories of overcoming addiction and have come back to the treatment center to help others find their way to recovery.
ABTRS has been helping people overcome addiction and live a life of recovery for over 10 years. Their full list of services allows us to custom tailor a treatment plan for everyone. Their treatment coordinators establish a path to recovery that includes everything from detox to varying levels of treatment to aftercare.
In fact, just this year they opened a cutting-edge independent living program in which patients can comfortably transition out of supervised living at their own pace. ABTRS allows people to participate in their sober living program for up to one full year after successfully completing a treatment program.
Register here for the event, as space is limited. Light refreshments will be served. Be a part of the mission to help those desperate for healing. We hope to see you there!
