According to their website, Healing Appalachia was created to produce events that help bring the communities of healing together. They raise funds and awareness to help combat opioid addiction through a wide array of projects and programs from youth prevention, healthy lifestyles and wellness to recovery houses and recovery to work. Described as a Farm Aid like event for recovery, they aim to bring people together to shine a spotlight on the need for healing in Appalachia. This event helps with year round efforts to do just that.
