We would like to announce the 2023 recipient of the Michael Askew Recovery Advocate of the Year Award... Sandra Violette! 

Sandra gained great experience working in multiple positions until she began her career in the Department of Corrections in 2005. She started as a Substance Abuse Counselor in the Hartford Parole office, and has since worked her way up the career ladder to be the Director of Addiction Treatment, a role she has held since 2017. 

Sandra now supervises over 70 staff members and has been instrumental in implementing Medicated Assisted Treatment within the Department - successfully opening 10 fully-licensed Opioid Treatment Programs using all three FDA approved medications. She also partners with community providers to address overdoses and community recovery to include NARCAN distribution to the offender population, parolees and their families, Recovery Coaching, Medicated Assisted Treatment and general continuity of care.

She is certainly highly deserving of this award - please join us in congratulating Sandra 👏👏

We will be presenting the Michael Askew Recovery Advocate of the Year Award at our Annual Meeting, 2/10! RSVP here: https://ccar.us/rsvp/
