Press Release - The Fairhaven Health Department, along with the New Bedford Fresh Start program, are co-sponsoring a hoarding remediation program known as Buried in Treasures. This program is roughly twenty weeks and is designed for individuals who struggle with hoarding disorder and/or individuals who are interested in learning how to support someone they know who struggles with hoarding disorder, such as spouses, children, family members, care givers, etc. Please keep in mind that those who join must commit to the entire length of the program. While we understand twenty weeks sounds like a long time, the program does fly by and members of the group form a bond in which helps to support each other during the program.
There are two workshop opportunities being offered for Spring 2020:
|Ann O'Donnell||Amanda Blais|
|Tuesday's from 3-5p.m. - Starts March 24th||Saturday's from 10a.m. - 12 noon - Starts March 7th|
|Domino's Pizza Conference Room||Millicent Library Community Room|
