Clarksburg, WV — Highland-Clarksburg Hospital's (HCHI) annual fundraiser proceeds will be geared toward combating the substance abuse and opioid epidemic in the state. The funds raised will support the hospital's new substance abuse unit and programming, set to open later this year. Enjoy an evening filled with hope and fun while supporting a great cause.
 
The 3rd Annual Huggs & Kisses is scheduled for Friday, May 18, 2018, at the Bridgeport Conference Center. WVU Men's Basketball Coach, Bob Huggins, is the guest speaker for the event. Kaufman Realty and Auctions will host a live auction,    featuring a variety of items from sporting event tickets to getaways, after the dinner and speakers. Social hour begins at 5 p.m., followed by dinner at 6 p.m. and the live auction at 7 p.m.
 
Substance abuse is a growing epidemic in our area, and one way to combat the problem is to recognize it exists and offer solutions. You can help HCHI combat the substance abuse problem in the Mountain State by supporting Huggs & Kisses III.
 
All proceeds will support substance abuse services and programming at the hospital. The new service will include 38 substance abuse beds aid in the recovery from substance use disorders by providing quality, comprehensive residential services within a safe and caring environment. The program will incorporate evidence-based practices, prevention strategies, and recovery supports as needed by the individual.
