Rock for recovery event held at Oak Ridge Church

WICOMICO COUNTY, MD. – Community members made their way to Oak Ridge Church to Enjoy some live music, during Wicomico Goes purple.

The Rock for Recovery event was held to raise awareness on substance abuse. It encourages families to have conversations about the stigmatized topic in a fun way.

Christina Bowie-Simpson, the Wicomico County Opioid Coordinator said the event was able to bring the community together and send the message that everyone struggling with opioids, matters, and help is available.

“Events like these are important because September is national recovery month; we know recovery takes work and we really just want to support those in recovery, but we also really want to reach family members and maybe those still struggling, so that they know that there’s help and resources available here for them,” Bowie-Simpson said.

Organizers hope even more people will join next year.
