Virginia Recovery Initiative Region 2

This video was funded by the Virginia Department of Behavioral Health and Development Services and produced by members of the Virginia Recovery Initiative Region 2, which primarily consists of the Northern VA Mental Health Institute and the Fairfax, Loudoun, Arlington and Alexandria Community Services Boards. The Recovery group meets monthly at Merrifield Center and focuses on activities that prepare our community to implement recovery-oriented services and systems, and supports the Northern Virginia region as it works to bring these efforts to scale.
