Flagler Open Arms Recovery Services to host National Recovery Month Festival
By: Flagler Open Arms Recovery Services (OARS)
"Our entire community is impacted by substance use disorder which includes legal drugs, illegal drugs, and alcohol. Over 12,000 people in Flagler are in some stage of recovery, and about half the families here are affected by relatives and friends with substance use disorders," said OARS Executive Director Pam Birtolo. "We are a free resource for peer support, public education and policy advocacy."
Pam and Danielle Moye-Auriemma,, OARS Certified Peer Support Specialist, are both passionate about helping the recovery community because they are living recovery, and they know it works. "In 2021 OARS has helped create new opportunities, as we connect individuals and families in recovery to needed services and current education," explains Danielle.
Faces and Voices of Recovery, FAVOR, sponsors National Recovery Month in September every year. They encourage local communities across the nation to join in. This festival demonstrates that recovery works in Flagler County. OARS encourages all families and friends to participate and learn more about our mission, enjoy the music, and celebrate recovery in our community.
Bring a yoga mat if you want to participate in an easy stress free yoga class at the beginning of the festivities and bring a lawn chair to sit back and enjoy music the rest of the day.
