Community Recovery Resources (CoRR) will celebrate its 40th year of service in Nevada County 4-7 p.m. Sept. 26, with a free family event, Recovery Happens at The Campus.
September is National Recovery Month and, as a news release notes, “recovery is happening … here, there, and everywhere!”
“As a community-based organization, we celebrate collaborative partnerships with individuals and organizations who make prevention, treatment, and recovery possible through their support and participation,” the release states. “Join us as we celebrate a day of progress in our community.
“Community Recovery Resources, the Coalition for a Drug Free Nevada County, and CoRR’s Recovery Alumni join in observance of promoting the message that prevention works, treatment is effective and people can and do recover. Behavioral health is essential to overall health. We honor and celebrate individuals and their families.”
The Coalition for a Drug Free Nevada County, Community Recovery Resources supporters, state and local dignitaries, clients new and former, Recovery Alumni Association, and SAMHSA will all be in attendance.
According to the release, more than 20 million Americans are in long-term recovery with the two-thirds of American families touched by addiction.
“There are many paths to recovery,” the release states, “including medical care and other professional treatment, group support, and self-help.”
Community Recovery Resources has been providing services in the community since 1974 and, thanks to its donors and support from the community:

The celebration on Sept. 26 will include a bounce house, dunk tank, Passport game, raffle, Recovery Rock painting, Fatal Vision goggles, Unity Circle, live music and 4:30 p.m. and 6 p.m. guided tours of the campus.
