Dozens gather for the 2021 Lights for Recovery Candlelight Vigil and Emmanuel House Graduation

September 30, 2021

The Smith County Drug Prevention Coalition hosted its annual Lights for Recovery Candlelight Vigil in front of the Smith County Historic Courthouse on Thursday, September 30 at 6:00pm.

This event was intended to celebrate those who are in recovery, support those who are still struggling with the disease of addiction, and remember those who have lost their battles with addiction.

Training for use of overdose reversal kits were available at the event.

At the end of the Candlelight Vigil, Executive Director of the Emmanuel House recognized two of their most recent graduates from their one year program, Danielle Batey and Jodie Rosenbaum.
