Mercy Health – Marcum and Wallace Hospital will host their first annual Estill County Recovery Rally on Friday, Oct. 21 from 5 to 8 p.m. at the Estill County Fair Barn (located at 38 South Irvine Road, Irvine, Ky.). This event is a community-building effort to help strengthen the bonds between people in recovery, their families, friends and our community. 

The community is invited to come and visit community resource booths, a kid’s station (including inflatable, petting zoo, face painting and pumpkin patch), food and drinks, live music by Jenn Richardson, Wes Shipp and Aaron Boyd, testimonials from Andrew Hager, Paula Adams and Pat Baily and recognitions.

“Addiction is part of my story, and I think it’s very important that we host events like this,” said Jessica Winchester, peer support specialist at Marcum and Wallace Hospital. “Those who have overcome addiction can come out and see that we support them, and we need those still struggling to know we want to see them get better. We want to help them.”

Mercy Health – Marcum and Wallace Hospital partnered with multiple outreach organizations including KY- ASAP, Reliance Works, Estill County Sheriffepartment, Estill County EMS, Estill Medical Clinic, Helping Hands and many others that can be seen at the event.

“We care about our community,” said Meghan Mills, director of community health at Marcum and Wallace Hospital. “This is our first annual event, so we hope the community can come out and show the support that is needed. We hope to save lives, recognize those in recovery and lend a hand of support by offering this free and educational event.”

According to a 2021 report produced by the Kentucky Office of Drug Control Branch, Estill County had the highest overdose death rate in Kentucky (based on the population adjusted per 100,000 inhabitants) that were attributed to illicit or prescription drugs.
