Las Vegas, NV –  Foundation for Recovery will host the 10th Annual Golf “Fore” Recovery Charity Tournament on October 16th, 2017 at TPC Summerlin to raise money for -and awareness of – addiction recovery and peer-based recovery support services in Nevada. The event is held close to Veteran’s Day to place special emphasis on supporting our many Military Veterans suffering from substance use and/or mental health disorders.

The event will kick off with a Color Guard, which is a uniformed group, especially of soldiers, police officers, or school representatives, who parade or present their institution’s flag (and sometimes their national flag) on ceremonial occasions. This service is provided by the Disable American Veterans, Black Mountain Chapter 12 United States Army Veteran.

Each year, this charity event raises money to help fight addiction in Nevada by supporting evidence-based peer recovery support services, including peer recovery coaching, statewide peer recovery specialist trainings. The event works to raise awareness regarding the plight of our local veterans who face homelessness, PTSD and other mental health challenges, and a debilitating addiction to drugs and alcohol.

“At Foundation for Recovery, we provide recovery support services to individuals in or seeking recovery from addiction,” explains Executive Director, Dona Dmitrovic.  “We meet people where they are and support the most vulnerable populations including veterans with one-on-one and telephonic peer coaching services, life skills training and introduce them to other community resources to ensure a successful pathway for recovery. We are all in recovery too, so we have been there and we understand.”
