SALISBURY, Md. – The Franklin P. and Arthur W. Perdue Foundation recently presented the Recovery Resource Center with a $30,000 grant, in order to help continue its mission to facilitate and support people on their journey to addiction recovery.

Every week, the Recovery Resource Center provides a safe haven and meeting place for roughly 1,000 people who participate in various support programs and educational workshops while they seek recovery from alcoholism, drug addiction, and other chemical use disorder.

“This organization is such a blessing to our community. Sadly, addiction is not something that can be cured. But the staff and programs at RRC make recovery manageable for their clients and we know that makes all the difference in their ability to work and enjoy their families. We are honored to help them in their mission to aid those in need of their services,” said executive director of the Franklin P. and Arthur W. Perdue Foundation Kim Nechay.

The Recovery Resource Center, which began as the Salisbury Substance Abuse Community Center, was established in 1987 by individuals who were in recovery. The Center’s recovery support programs are provided completely free to any person wanting support.

“We have a tough job and without the generosity of organizations like Perdue, we wouldn’t be able to offer aid to the community. I can’t thank them enough,” said Curtis Paul, executive director of the Recovery Resource Center.

The Center is located at 726 S. Salisbury Blvd, on the corner of Waverly Drive and Hazel Avenue, in Salisbury. If you would like more information, you can call 410-742-9482, or visit their website here.
