What is the Recovery Resource Center?
Are you, or someone you know, trying to cope with a love one who is struggling with an addiction to alcohol, drugs or some other type of addiction? Does someone you know have a mental illness or other problems that is affecting your family?
We have two shelves on the bookcase across from the Sign-Up Center with books on those topics. The books were donated by Hazelden Publishing through their Foundation.
You may borrow these books the same as other items in the library and, if you prefer, you don’t have to use your name. Just put RR on the card.
