Richmond area sheriffs support recovery efforts in their jails.

What a treat to see the sheriffs of Richmond city, Chesterfield county and Henrico county, all at the McShin fundraiser. The McShin foundation is putting a lot of effort into bringing the message of recovery into Richmond City jails. They organize recovering addicts to volunteer and go into the jails and teach the inmates about addiction and recovery. They organize support services and help for the inmates when they get out. What a great job they are doing for a population who really need a lot of help and who traditionally have not received much help.

That appears to be changing. At the recent fundraiser, the three sheriffs were there supporting these efforts. When this level of support comes from the top down, you know real change is on the way.
