Realtors for Recovery was proud to partner with Rotary District 7780 Recovery Initiative in this fundraising event.
Rotary District 7780 Recovery Initiative organizes seminars that educate the community on the dangers of opioids, supports education campaigns in public schools, and raises money to train recovery coaches who assist those living with substance use disorder.
All too often, in conversation, we hear about a suicide or overdose resulting in death due to Substance Use Disorder. The heart-breaking stories of families torn apart and lives shattered are heard whenever the topic of opioids is discussed. Everyone knows of someone whose life has been affected by this epidemic.
According to the CDC, 70,237 drug overdose deaths occurred in the United States in 2017. Opioids—mainly synthetic opioids (other than methadone)—are currently the main driver of drug overdose deaths. Opioids were involved in 47,600 overdose deaths in 2017 (67.8% of all drug overdose deaths).
Sharing Hope: Stories of Recovery is the opposite of these statistics. These are the stories of individuals who in their own way have found the path to recovery. We heard from those who have fought through pain and trauma to reach a place of light and joy. They reached out to us with two arms and surrounded us with love to comfort and inspire.
On this night, they shared their stories of hope. They showed us that recovery is possible.
Evening hosted by Ritchie Farrell - Filmmaker, author, WGA screenwriter and motivational speaker living in Milford, NH.
