The Celebrate Recovery Walk & Rally XII recognizes the successes of those recovering from drug addiction, as well as alcoholism. Included are individuals in recovery, family members and friends, treatment professionals in the field of addiction, and others supporting recovery.
The event is scheduled for Sept. 15, and will take place on Belle Isle from 2:00 to 4:00 p.m. Entertainment, Speakers, Awards, and the Walk & Rally will take place there.
September is also National Recovery Month "...promoting the societal benefits of prevention, treatment, and recovery for mental and substance use disorders, celebrates people in recovery, lauds the contributions of treatment and service providers, and promotes the message that recovery in all its forms is possible. Recovery Month spreads the positive message that behavioral health is essential to overall health, that prevention works, treatment is effective and people can and do recover," according to the Substance Abuse and Mental Health Services Administration, (SAMHSA).
