Partnership to present Recovery Resource Fair

HUNTSVILLE – In observance of National Recovery Month in September, the Partnership for a Drug-Free Community will present the second annual Recovery Resource Fair on Sept. 30.

The event will focus on anyone looking for information about treatment for substance use disorders. Approximately 20 area treatment and service providers will be available in one place to answer questions about the different type of services locally.

“September is a time to celebrate those who are in recovery and offer hope to those on the journey to a healthier way of life,” Wendy Reeves said. She is Interim Executive Director, Partnership for a Drug-Free Community.

Huntsville Mayor Tommy Battle has signed a proclamation that pledges the city’s support for highlighting those who are in recovery of substance abuse disease and helping those on the path to recovery. The mayor called upon citizens to observe recovery month’s 2020 theme, “Join the Voices of Recovery: Celebrating Connections.”

The Recovery Resource Fair will be held from 4:30 to 7:30 p.m. at Partnership’s office at One Stop Shop of Community Services, 2201 Clinton Ave. W. in Huntsville at the intersection with Seminole Drive. Guests can park at Rocket City Credit Union.

Starting at 4:30 p.m., treatment providers will have booths set up outside and will honor safe practices of social distancing with representatives who can answer questions about the types of resources available in North Alabama and ways to access services. Attendees should wear a face covering.

Guests can meet Mike Woods, Partnership’s Peer Support Specialist with the Recovery Resource Hub, and “learn how he helps get willing participants into treatment,” Reeves said.

At 6 p.m., Woods will share his personal story of recovery. Attendees also can participate in a question-and-answer session with Woods and a panel composed of the available providers for recovery resources.

Following the program, participants can visit with the various providers for resources until 7:30 p.m. and ask for information and guidance.

“Partnership’s mission is as important as ever, and we will continue to do everything we can to provide prevention, education and awareness on substance use in our community,” Reeves said.

The office address for Partnership for a Drug-Free Community is 2201 Clinton Ave. W. in Huntsville. For more information, call the Recovery Resource Hub locally at 256-539-7339 or the state’s 24/7 Helpline at 844-307-1760 or visit partnershipforadrug-freecommunity.org.
