What’s New:

The Staten Island PGRC would like to thank Jaime Rufano from College of Staten Island’s Wellness Center for helping us engage students to participate in Screening Day on September 22. We enjoyed collaborating with them to figure out creative ways to reach students during this time and we look forward to many more collaborations on future events.  

The Staten Island PGRC would like to thank Eddie Matos from Next Step Recovery Center for inviting our Team Leader to have a wonderful discussion with your Peer Recovery Group about problem gambling and recovery. We learned a lot from listening to your peers and are looking forward to our discussion next month! We’re thankful for all they do for people in recovery on Staten Island.
