BINGHAMTON, NY – A grateful client of a local substance use recovery center is looking to give back with a fun day at the lanes.

Michael Page has organized a bowling fundraiser to support Voices Recovery Center in Binghamton.
Page credits Voices with helping him to get his life back on track.


The center is operated by Fairview Recovery Services and offers a variety of non-clinical programs and supports for people battling alcohol and drug addiction.


They include group therapy sessions, peer advocates, recovery coaches, a clothing bank, a food bank and transportation to therapy and treatment appointments.


Voices also offers several sober recreational outlets such as yoga, art classes and writing classes as well as sober holiday parties and celebrations.


Program Director Don Garren says Voices offers a community that meets participants where they’re at in their journey.

Program Director Don Garren says, “Helping them to achieve their goals in recovery is of utmost importance. We’re not here to tell anybody how to recover from drugs and alcohol. We’re here to ask you, ‘What are your goals? And how can we help you achieve those goals?'”


The bowling tournament will take place at Midway Lanes in Vestal on Sunday August 28th with a plan for 2 squads at noon and 3:30 p.m.


Cost is $25 per person and includes 3 games, show rental, pizza, wings, salad and soda, door prizes, raffles and a championship belt to the winner.


All proceeds are going to Voices.


Registration is due by Saturday August 20th.
