The 2013 Race for Recovery and Disc Golf Tournament marks the 5th year that our community has come together to celebrate the societal benefits of recovery through promoting Annual Recovery Month (www.recoverymonth.gov) in the CSRA. Some of you may remember Senator Ed Tarver kicking off our 1st 5k, which has been a growing success since 2009.
This year we all have an opportunity to gain much needed information on the newly growing problem with the synthetic drug, “SPICE,” which has become nearly epidemic in our own communities. Much thanks to Chuvalo Truesdell, of the DEA Atlanta Field Division Office for providing us all the opportunity to become more knowledgeable about this new drug!
Our coalition invites you to join us as we celebrate National Recovery Month’s 24th year of promoting the message that recovery in all its forms is possible, while encouraging us all to take action to help expand and improve the availability of effective prevention, treatment, and recovery services for those in need.
We look forward to your participation! Special thanks to Serenity Behavioral Health for being this year's Platinum Plus Sponsor!

The 6th Annual Mid Carolina NAMIWalks will be held Saturday April 20, 2013 at the West Columbia Riverwalk Park and Amphitheater.
The goal of the walk is to raise awareness regarding mental illness within the Midlands of South Carolina and to increase funding to expand the reach of NAMI’s educational and support programs in our community. The proceeds from the Walk will be used by NAMI Mid-Carolina:
- To provide hands-on support and education to persons with serious brain disorders and to their families
- To advocate for improved opportunities for housing, rehabilitation and meaningful jobs
- To support public education programs designed to help eliminate the pervasive stigma surrounding mental illness which often prevents people from seeking treatment
Your support can help NAMI Mid-Carolina meet these goals in our community. You can lend your support as a Corporate Sponsor, a Team Captain, a Walker or perhaps as all three - please contact us to learn more about this exciting opportunity for the Midlands of South Carolina!
Fairfield Behavioral and Health held a luncheon to recognize their efforts within the county.
NOPE Task Force lights up the night to remember those lost to and suffering from the disease of addiction. Many lives have been destroyed by substance abuse and the disease of addiction. Too often, this disease is perceived as deserved and shameful, leaving families to grieve in silence, or an addict struggling to recover alone. The NOPE Vigil strives to raise awareness and open the doors to recovery by eliminating the prejudice that follows the disease of addiction. The vigil is held in memory of the 30,000 United States citizens who die from accidental drug poisonings each year. Please join us for this special event honoring those whose lives have been lost, while giving hope to those who are still on the road to recovery.
