News & Events

The federal Commission on Combating Drug Addiction and the Opioid Crisis last week released its much anticipated recommendations. Some of them were bold and constructive, including calling for the president to declare a national state of emergency, a move that would bring about urgent coordinated actions between state and federal authorities to address the opioid crisis. But a critical piece to solving this challenge—supporting people in recovery—was completely missing.

The opioid epidemic in our community is frightening. While our politicians, law enforcement, judicial system and medical community search for an answer, ROCovery FITness is doing something about it. ROCovery, one of our members of the Assocation of Recovery Community Organizations (ARCO), is providing fitness programming and community support for those in recovery. It’s making a real difference, read about ROCovery inside new edition of the Healthy Edge magazine.
