Mar 27th - Special Guest Speaker from Derek's Haven

Derek Collins.  His Mom, Linette Collins, is our guest speaker
Derek’s Haven inc. is a Charity that provides funding for Drug Rehabilitation and Sober Living for young men & women who have struggled with addiction but are choosing a path to recovery. We are a safe haven where people who are new in their recovery will find support from others who are also on their own journey of recovery.
Derek’s Haven was created out of a desire to be of service to those struggling with addiction. Their son Derek had become addicted to opiates after he broke his back in a snow boarding accident at 15 1/2 years old. With the help of inpatient rehab and outpatient treatment Derek went into recovery for 22 months. Unfortunately he relapsed and overdosed and passed away just before his 19th birthday. Derek was a compassionate and amazing young man with a bright future. He had a dream to help people who were struggling with addiction like him. It is out of the pain & loss that we have created Derek’s Haven. Their hope is to support those brave souls who choose recovery and to save even one other family from the unimaginable loss of their child.
