About CW&RC

At our Chesapeake Wellness & Recovery Coalition, we bring a variety of partners to the table once a month to discuss how to improve the behavioral wellness and the recovery capacity of  the City of Chesapeake. Our focus is to identify ways in which we can help our community and to provide resources and bring awareness to issues our community faces. Our goal is to minimize unhealthy behaviors and educate our citizens on relevant issues so they can live the healthiest life possible.
