HVAF along with the Residential, Employment, Substance Abuse, Treatment (REST) program held its 11th Annual Recovery Day on Sept. 19. Each September, in support of National Recovery Month, HVAF holds an event to reflect on the recovery efforts of individuals, families and communities affected by addiction.
Recovery Day is a chance to reflect on past accomplishments and set new goals and allows veterans the opportunity to speak in support of individuals in recovery. The day’s festivities included three speaker meetings, and also included games and barbecue.
HVAF provides homeless veterans with housing, counseling and other basic needs. The organization’s recovery program aids veterans to overcome addictions to drugs or alcohol as well as mental health barriers. Visit hvaf.org to learn more about the event.
