On Thursday at 10:00 pm, Road to Recovery host, James Sutton, speaks with Tree of Hope Association’s Co-Executive Directors, LaTonia Rich and Ed “Bunny” Rich, about the recovery services their organization offers. Tree of Hope are a group of people who have come through the recovery treatment community and have succeeded in becoming productive members of society. As peers they are driven to fill the gaps of the system to help ensure that those starting in recovery stand a better chance at success.

LaTonia and Bunny Rich discuss how Tree of Hope help people live in recovery by networking, socializing, and sponsors. Through sponsorship, family support groups, housing, medical, and many other services, Tree of Hope aids in the journey of recovery. They also, share about educating law enforcement through The Steer Program (Stop, Triage, Engage, Educate, and Rehabilitate).
