Partnership to present Recovery Resource Fair

MADISON COUNTY – “Recovery Changes Everything” is the resounding message for an event sponsored by Partnership for a Drug-Free Community and its Recovery Resource Hub.

As part of National Recovery Month, Partnership is conducting its fourth annual Recovery Resource Fair on Sept. 21 from 4:30 to 7:30 p.m. The fair will be held at Partnership’s office at the One Stop Shop of Community Services, 2201 Clinton Ave. W. (at the intersection of Clinton and Seminole Drive). Guests can park across the street at Rocket City Federal Credit Union.

“Anyone looking to learn about available resources for a substance use disorder or addiction treatment — with or without insurance — should plan to attend the fair,” Wendy Reeves said. Reeves is Executive Director of Partnership for a Drug-Free Community.

“This National Recovery Month event will feature up to 20 area treatment and service providers available in one place to answer questions about the different types of treatment and recovery services available locally,” Reeves said. “It’s important, especially during this time of unprecedented overdoses, to focus on those who are in recovery to show that change is possible.”

Starting at 4:30 p.m., treatment providers will have booths set up with representatives who can answer questions about the types of treatment resources and how an individual can access the services.

Guest speaker David Battle, who will soon celebrate 26 years in recovery, will share his incredible journey at 6:30 p.m. Battle was a high school and college football standout until a knee injury ended his playing career at Auburn University.

Battle’s subsequent involvement with illegal drugs and addiction led to two sentences in prison, where he also was inspired to change. Since then, he has earned four college degrees. He now works in the field of substance, helping others find and maintain sobriety.

Reeves emphasized the importance of the resource fair because “our community faces record numbers of overdose deaths. Letting people know that there are resources available to help and that people can and do change their lives makes a big difference in the opioid and fentanyl epidemics.”
