Warriors raise funds for addiction treatment

Warriors raise funds for addiction...

WEST OCEAN CITY, Md. - Worcester County Warriors Against Opiate Addiction held a fundraiser event named 'Rock for Recovery' to help those who need treatment.

This was the second annual event at Trader Lee's, one of many events put on by the organization, and most of the funds go toward assisting people in need of treatment for costs that insurance may not cover.

Those costs may include travel expenses, housing or intense outpatient programs, Heidi McNeeley says, whatever they can do.

"From the moment we started last year, last April, the community has just opened its doors and offered us an opportunity to not only raise funds but to spread awareness...  A lot of it takes place in Worcester County, so we're just trying to spread awareness and dispel the stigma so that people that need help won't be ashamed to ask for help."
