Weekly Update

Greetings ARCVA members & friends, I’m excited to introduce our newly established ARCVA Membership Program. We offer individual, organization and corporate membership levels. Please see attached application and check out our website for additional information.

We are joining the Association of Recovery Community Organizations at Faces & Voices of Recovery (ARCO). ARCO is a new initiative that brings established, new and emerging groups together to build the unified voice of the organized recovery community by leveraging the profile and unifying force of Faces & Voices for member organizations.

Mark your calendars: for the 7th Annual Recovery Fest & 2nd Annual BBQ Cook Off on September 17 in Glenn Allen. We are looking for BBQ teams to participate in the Kansas City Barbeque Society State Championship (KCBS). Check bbq.mcshin.org for additional information.

Note: As an ARCVA member, you are revolutionizing the culture of recovery from substance use disorders in the state of Virginia using a model that any state is welcome to emulate. As an ARCVA member, you are helping reduce the stigma associated with recovery and helping save thousands of lives each month.

Have a great Fourth of July weekend and don’t forget to check our website at arcva.org for updates.

All the best,

Patty Valentine

Council Director, ARCVA
