  • History:
  • Choices Recovery Center was established in January of 2015. We incorporated May 1st 2015 and just received our determination letter from the IRS very recently giving us official non profit status. We have 35 volunteers as well as available qualified staff once funding is obtained. We are actively seeking a location. We have many fundraiser planned a committees already formed to support these efforts. We expect to recieve financial support from local hospitals as well as others like yourself both locally and nationally. We will be included in State funding when available as well. As Executive Director of Choices I have been very active over the past year with two of our local treatement centers as well as the Department of Behavioral Health and Developmental Services of the State of Virginia assisting with seminars and educational programs raising awareness with regard to the stigma associated with alcoholism and drug addiction. Our first participant in our program had been unemployable for the last seven years due to her addiction and associated disorders. She came to Choice seeking assistance. She had a felony record and she had zero belief that anyone would ever hire her. We worked with her on 3 different occassions helping her draft a resume, role playing interview skills and providing her with the encouragement she needed to believe in herself. She started putting in application and with in two weeks she was hired and has remained employed. She rides the bus to work everyday and is saving for a small car. Just one of many success story we will have. As Exectutive Director I have spoken sharing my own story of addiction and recovery all of the country. Everybody knows somebody with an addiction problem. Help us at Choice help the suffering addicts and their familes recover. Addiction is not a choice, but recovery can be.
