Good morning Kathy.  I had no idea that Delray Beach was the recovery center of the world.

Kathy, Sounds like a great cause.  Locally, drugs have been taking out people left and right, heroin in particular.  And with a selection of casinos in the area I'd assume plenty of gambling problems too.

Good Morning Kathy Streib 

What a great idea. Last year, as a sitting member of our Board of Selectmen, I started a Substance Abuse Advisory Panel, now named the Georgetown Cares Coalition https://www.georgetowncaresma.org I am forwarding the Crossroads concept to that committee.

We have too many people who need help and are afraid or don't know where to start to get such help. This looks like a great cause Kathy Streib

There are a lot of people in this world who need help and this sounds like a worthy event to support that.

Hi Wayne Martin it is an excellent use of space and Delray is trying hard to combat the opioid addiction. 

Barbara Todaro that is so good of you to continue to go and to speak at them. There is a large group that meets on Saturdays and Sundays as well as holidays, and I admire them for their commitment.

Donald Urschalitz it really is. Many participating have been helped by the Center or knows someone who has been. 

Gabe Sanders we didn't either until after we moved back. There are sober homes everywhere.

Liz and Bill Spear I spoke to someone the other day whose brother has worked at one of the centers. She said that because of Delray's crack down on some of the illegal homes, the "industry" might be moving to Texas. Some come here from all over the country and then stay when their recovery is no longer covered by insurance.

Michael Jacobs I didn't want people to fall asleep with my blog!

Doug Dawes thank you for helping others and I hope that they might find the information useful. Walking on the beach every day I can vouch for the many who are dedicated to meeting at the beach on weekends and holidays.

Sheri Sperry - MCNE® I agree. One of the young ladies who works at the diner we go to just got her Masters and hopes to work in that area. 

Paul S. Henderson, REALTOR®,CRS, Thankfully, many of the restaurants in the area hire them!  This way they have a job while they are getting better.

JL Boney, III since moving back here, I've learned that you don't know what some of the people you meet here are going through.

Hi Will Hamm besides our weather and the beaches, we have what many other areas have.

Kathy, I had no idea that there was such a support group and that your part of the world is considered the "recovery capital of the world" I wonder how many from LA moved to recover in your neck of the woods, Endre

Morning Kathy.

I have one son who could use one of those groups. I fear he is headed to do time in a State facility
