Partnership’s Recovery Resource Fair promises ‘Recovery is for everyone’

HUNTSVILLE – Organizers for the Recovery Resource Fair pledge that “Recovery is for EVERYone: EVERY Person, EVERY Family, EVERY Community.”

Partnership for a Drug-Free Community and its Recovery Resource Hub will host the third annual Recovery Resource Fair, which coincides with National Recovery Month. The fair on Sept. 29 will run from 4:30 to 7:30 p.m. at Partnership’s office, located at One Stop Shop of Community Services, 2201 Clinton Ave. W., at the intersection of Clinton Street and Seminole Drive.

Guests can park across the street at Rocket City Federal Credit Union.

The fair can benefit anyone looking to learn about available resources for a substance use disorder or addiction treatment, with or without insurance coverage, Partnership Executive Director Wendy Reeves said.

Gathered at one site, approximately 15 representatives from area treatment and service providers will attend and answer questions about the different types of available services locally.

Starting at 4:30 p.m., treatment providers will have booths set up with representatives who can answer questions about accessing services in the Huntsville and Madison vicinity. “Attendees will have an opportunity to meet Laura Edwards, who works as Peer Support Specialist with Partnership’s Recovery Resource Hub. Guests can learn how Laura helps get participants into treatment,” Reeves said.

At 6 p.m., Edwards will share her personal story of recovery. Attendees also can participate in a question-and-answer session with Edwards. A panel discussion will involve resource providers with whom guests can talk.

During the past two years, five people have signed up for treatment during the Recovery Resource Fair.

The fair will be held outside. For COVID-19 constraints, face coverings and social distancing are required for guests. All COVID-19 guidelines will be observed.

Some signs of a person engaged in substance abuse are impaired functioning in social and occupational settings, impaired memory, anxiety, depression, aggressive behavior, social withdrawal, fatigue, slurred speech, tension, restlessness, anger, fighting, paranoia and drowsiness. The level that an individual shows symptoms of abuse can vary and depend on the drug of choice and the individual body’s response.
