We must be united in the war against addiction! My mission is to unite organizations,support groups, and everyone else who needs a helping hand. I am here to educate equip and develop a Recovery resource Network. My hope is that everyone gets the help they need and no one is left behind or alone in their fight for freedom from addiction. Join me and lets fight the good fight! Our Philosophy: Instigate, Agitate, Educate, and Liberate!
Not all of us can do great things. But we can do small things with great love.

The Recovery Challenge is to post a short video (two minutes or less) on social media explaining how recovery has changed your life and pass the challenge on to at least four other people. If you cannot make a video then make a donation to Recovery Walks 2014!You have 24 hours to take the challenge. Use hashtags #recoverywalkschallenge and #RecoveryWalks2014.

Everyone has a story about recovery! A person in recovery, a family member or friend. Neighbors, Teachers, Parents, Coaches, Pastors, Counselors, Law Enforcement, Pubic Officials - anyone who has seen the problems caused by substance use and mental health problems, and wants to raise awareness about the reality of recovery, health and wellness in our communities.
