Halifax County National Night Out

Halifax County National Night Out


Yesterday was Overdose Awareness day. 3 years ago my youngest brother died from an overdose and in the 30 years I have been in recovery I can't begin to count the friends I have lost due to overdoses. In 2019 drug overdose deaths jumped to nearly 71,000, a record high.

Addiction has affected the lives of my children, my husband and anyone who ever loved me. In 2020 there are no families who remain unaffected.

I am the CEO, Co-Founder and Program Director of Recovering Hands which is a Consumer Operated 501-3(c) organization dedicated to providing support and residential extended-care to women suffering the effects of substance use. We are located on a 150-acre property, known as Breezy Hill in Nathalie, VA.

We offer 30, 60 and 90-day options to women seeking to recover from drug and alcohol addiction. Through our life skills program, our residents find the balance between responsibility and purpose. They develop greater personal responsibility and renewed life purpose and enthusiasm. The increased self esteem and self-awareness created by their participation in our program creates the resiliency necessary to thrive.

Can we help you or someone you love?

Our program relies almost entirely on the generosity of our donors. We fight the effects of this Opioid Epidemic one grateful life at a time. Won't you please join in our efforts?


National Night Out" (NNO), is a unique crime/drug prevention event held nationwide. Our local event is sponsored by the Halifax County NNO committee, local law enforcement agencies, local businesses, and citizens.
