HUNTSVILLE, Ala — The Recovery Resource Fair on Wednesday, Sept. 21 is designed to help those, with or without insurance, learn more about available resources for substance use disorders, addiction, and treatment.
Partnership for a Drug-Free Community and its Recovery Resource Hub will host the Recovery Resource Fair from 4:30 to 7:30 p.m. at Partnership’s office at the One Stop Shop of Community Services, 2201 Clinton Ave. W. (intersection of Clinton and Seminole Drive). Parking will be available across the street at the Rocket City Federal Credit Union.
The Huntsville community faces record numbers of overdose deaths. Resources will be available to help and tell people how they can change their lives and make a big difference in others, especially during the opioid and fentanyl epidemics.
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.
Starting at 4:30 p.m., treatment providers will have booths set up with representatives who can answer questions about the types of resources available in the area and how to access services.
At 6:30 p.m., guest speaker David Battle, who is about to celebrate 26 years in recovery, will share his sobriety journey. Battle was a high school and college football standout until a knee injury ended his playing career at Auburn. His later involvement with illegal drugs and addiction led to two sentences in prison – where he also was inspired to change. Since then, he’s earned four college degrees. Battle now works in the substance use field, helping others find and maintain sobriety.
