In recognition of September being National Recovery Month, EPIC Zone — a youth clubhouse in Geneva — is hosting an event Saturday called “Hoops for Recovery.”
The event will run from 1 to 3 p.m. at the Geneva Community Center, 160 Carter Road. It will feature:
– Basketball — EPIC Zone members, along with community residents, will play 10-minute pick-up games.
– Food and snacks.
– Information about community resources and the opportunity to meet the people involved in them.
– Free T-shirt.

Event organizers said National Recovery Month increases awareness and understanding of mental and substance use disorders, and encourages people in need of treatment and recovery services to seek help.
