Jan and I are excited to chair the 2021 Power of Prevention fundraiser. Our speaker will be former NBA player and subject of Emmy nominated ESPN documentary, Unguarded, Chris Herren. We are planning a September 28, 2021, early evening event in a neighborhood backyard with a food truck providing dinner. We want a safe and casual evening with friends, promoting mental wellness and recovery in our community.
Recovery Resource Council’s mission is to promote wellness and recovery from alcohol, substance use disorders, and trauma. Our psychotherapy, educational, and basic needs programs are focused on preventing morbidity from mental illness. Since merging with the Dallas Council on Drugs and Alcohol, Fort Worth based Recovery Resource Council, now serves 20 North Texas counties.
The Council has more than doubled in size since the merger, providing essential and increasingly needed mental health care to low and no income North Texans. Addiction therapy, referrals, education, and screening services are the core of the services Recovery Resource Council has provided to North Texans for 75 years.
Thank you for joining us in our mission to ensure that Dallasites, and more broadly, North Texans, have access to mental health and basic needs programs and services during this unique and extremely crucial time. Because you are joining us, we know that we are making our community better for our families and friends – to another 75 years
