Recovery center hosts celebration
In an effort to support youth struggling with Substance Use Disorder, Pam Pearce — a founder of Community Living Above — opened a recovery center for youth in West Linn. The opening celebration of the Family Inspired Recovery Center, an Alternative Peer Group for adolescents and their families, will be from 5:30-8:30 p.m. Sunday, Aug. 4. The center is housed at the West Linn Lutheran Church, 20390 Willamette Drive.
There will be several speakers including John Cates, industry leader for APG, local therapist Donny Write and a family who will share their personal story.
Since FIR is a nonprofit organization, funds raised during the event will go toward ensuring all who need the support receive it.
