This past month during Black Friday Main Street Station had a concert.
Molly Hatchet and Big Engine landed on the grand stage and played to over a thousand attendees.
A concert to benefit Waves to Recovery the not for profit organization that helps people recovering from PTSD.
Their mission is healing from all types of Post Traumatic Stress Disorders (PTSD) for anyone who has suffered a traumatic event by means of boating, fishing, education, and medical therapy from a licensed medical professional.
The driving Southern Rock Band from the late seventies and eighties along with Big Engine a local favorite had the crowd cheering and pumping fists all night. The echoes of "Flirting with Disaster”could be heard down Main-street Daytona Beach like ghosts of Southern Rocks past.
Behind Daytona captured the moment in time and through the images, if just for one minute, those who attended that have been afflicted with this condition were uplifted and transported to a better place
Waves to Recovery continues its mission to help those stricken with PTSD whether they be veterans, women suffering from domestic violence issues, or the many first res-ponders who suffer traumatic events.

There is help for recovering mothers in the Daytona area. The Daytona Blues Festival 2017 will take place this year on Oct 6th - 8th
Even though the 2016 Daytona Blues Festival was cancelled due to Hurricane Matthew, the generous sponsors and loyal fans made to possible for the DBF’s Dr. Pam Carbiener to present a $15,000 check to Project WARM, Women Assisting Recovering Mothers.
WARM at Vince Carter Sanctuary is a long term residential treatment facility for 70 women exhibiting symptoms of drug and alcohol dependence, with 43 beds designated for those women who are pregnant, post- partum, and parenting young children (27 beds for single women). Initially established in Daytona Beach, WARM relocated to the Vince Carter Sanctuary in Bunnell, a move that allowed the program to more than triple in capacity. A unique component of WARM is that the women who enter treatment are permitted to include their children in the treatment process. Children under the age of six may reside at the facility with their mother while older children are eligible to visit on the weekend. Research supports the notion that addiction is a family problem. Allowing children to remain connected with their mother during this time assists the family in healing.
While in treatment, the women live in a therapeutic community. In addition to receiving the clinical help from a team of therapists, the women in Project WARM encourage and assist in each other’s recovery. Through a variety of therapeutic groups and individual therapy, the women in WARM learn healthy coping skills, boundaries in relationships, development of necessary life skills, and enhanced parenting abilities. They also learn to address the devastating traumas that many women have faced throughout their life. While the mothers attend the clinical programming during the week, their children attend the on-site child
development center provided by Easter Seals.”
