September is Recovery Month. Recovery Month promotes the societal benefits of prevention, treatment, and recovery from substance use and behavioral disorders, celebrates people in recovery, recognizes the contributions of treatment and service providers, and promotes the message that recovery in all its forms is possible.
Phoenix Houses of New England is once again a proud sponsor of Rally4Recovery, Rhode Island’s premier alcohol- and drug-free celebration. As an event sponsor, each year Phoenix House helps to support this celebration. Rally4Recovery is an annual festival organized by individuals in recovery from addiction to alcohol and other drugs. It is a community building effort with the goal of strengthening bonds among people in recovery.
Rally4Recovery will take place on Saturday, September 15, 2012, at 2:00 p.m. at Roger Williams National Memorial in Providence and is geared toward families. Activities for the young include crafts, face-painting, a reptile show, and a rock climbing wall. The day will be filled with live music, food, entertainment, and inspirational speakers.
Recovery Month spreads the positive messages that behavioral health is essential to overall health, that prevention works, treatment is effective, and people can and do recover.
