Living In Recovery 2nd Annual Golf Outing
Field is Filling Up!
The Living In Recovery Golf Outing represents our most significant fund raising event of the year.  Last year, we raised over $9,000 thanks to our sponsors, golfers and donors.  This money was used to help provide small salaries to our previously all-volunteer house managers and established an important benchmark for fundraising efforts for the organization moving forward. 

We are expecting a full field on Friday June 5th at the Links at Challedon Golf Course in Mt. Airy!  To manage pace of play, we are capping the number of participants at 120 golfers. Thanks to those of you who have already signed up.  If you haven’t, time is running out.

Not a golfer? We have opportunities for individual and corporate sponsorship ($100 hole signs) and welcome any contributions (cash, gifts, discounts) towards gifts and prizes for the field. 

Addiction is a Disease

From The National Institute on Drug Abuse:

"Many people do not understand why or how other people become addicted to drugs. It is often mistakenly assumed that drug abusers lack moral principles or willpower and that they could stop using drugs simply by choosing to change their behavior. In reality, drug addiction is a complex disease, and quitting takes more than good intentions or a strong will.

In fact, because drugs change the brain in ways that foster compulsive drug abuse, quitting is difficult, even for those who are ready to do so. Through scientific advances, we know more about how drugs work in the brain than ever, and we also know that drug addiction can be successfully treated to help people stop abusing drugs and lead productive lives.

Drug abuse and addiction have negative consequences for individuals and for society. Estimates of the total overall costs of substance abuse in the United States, including productivity and health- and crime-related costs, exceed $600 billion annually! "
