A Step Forward

Reeling for Recovery

The Reeling for Recovery fishing derby was created after the founders lost close friends and family to addiction. Their goal is to provide a fun and family-friendly ice fishing contest, while making a stand against addiction. Proceeds help the Prevention program at CVFC continue their work to provide education, support, and counseling around substance use prevention. We teach and support skill building in the areas of healthy choices, managing emotions, resistance skills, communication skills and resolving conflicts. We provide direct services to at-risk youth in both student assistance counseling and during our summer program, both of which support our youth in making good decisions, reaching goals and reinforcing academic success.

Prevention services are key to building protective factors in youth to prevent substance use.

The most up to date event details as well as pictures from previous years may be found on the R4R Facebook page.
