We can't believe how much has changed in a few short years. In 2017, our Recovery Resource Center program was just an idea, dreamed up by a team of recovery experts in our community. With a lot of hard work, research and teamwork, the idea became a reality.
As of today, the program has already grown to include a second location in downtown Jasper to serve Walker County residents. We have now helped thousands of individuals find their way to a successful recovery and better health. By partnering with the incredible folks at Jefferson County Department of Health, we have been able to train hundreds and hundreds to reverse opioid overdose with regular naloxone trainings throughout the community.
We are so grateful to all of our community partners who know that recovery is possible for everyone and helped launch this program to provide these much needed services.
We can't wait to see what the next five years holds for this program.
It's really happening...a multidisciplinary approach to recovery. The Recovery Resource Center is a collaboration between the Jefferson County Department of Health, Crisis Center, Inc., Community Foundation of Greater Birmingham, Northwest Alabama Treatment Center, Cooper Green Mercy Hospital, Fellowship House Birmingham, UAB Substance Abuse Programs, The Addiction and Recovery Program at UAB, UAB Department of Emergency Medicine to address the opioid epidemic in our community.
