About the Trainer
Savage Sisters Recovery
Savage Sisters’ founder and Executive Director, Sarah Laurel, created Savage Sisters and its programming after she overcame her traumatic battle with substance use disorder and homelessness. After years of being shuffled through the system, she found herself in a wheelchair and once again being offered substandard care. What began as a desire to have one safe home for a couple of women, grew organically over the past five years. Today, Savage Sisters has nine recovery homes, a drop-in center, weekly street-based outreaches, and statewide overdose reversal and harm reduction trainings.
