Living in their Addiction, Loving in Family Recovery

  • New Hope Solebury High School Library 182 West Bridge Street New Hope, PA, 18938 United States (map)

The New Hope Solebury Cares Speaker Series continues as we recognize family recovery month. Join us on Wednesday February 27th at 7pm in the New Hope-Solebury School library. We welcome Prevention Specialist and NHSC Board Member Dori Dugan, who will tell her story of survival, strength and hope.

Dori grew up in an alcoholic home in the Midwest. Both her parents battled addiction. Parentified at a young age, Dori spent much of her childhood watching over them, and her only sibling, who suffers from an intellectual disability. An intervention led to recovery for both of her parents while she was in middle school. The alcohol stopped. The recovery will continue forever. 

Dori is a skilled preventionist who has been serving the Bucks County community for twelve years. She works as a primary prevention educator, providing expertise to adults and students with a diverse curriculum of critical topics facing them. Dori is also a mobilizer for New Hope Solebury Cares, a local, federally funded coalition working to support an addiction-free community, and, also facilitates programs for The Peace Center as a volunteer. Prior to prevention, she ran a small business and worked in communications, public relations, and marketing.

Dori applies her skills as a problem solver in all facets of her life. Many of these skills were honed at a very young age. Join us to hear her inspiring story about the process from victim to survivor to thriver.
