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!

While we're celebrating our 14th Annual Recovery Walk, we're also celebrating SAMHSA's National Recovery Month.
Recovery Month promotes the societal benefits of prevention, treatment, and recovery for mental and/or substance use disorders. The 2015 Recovery Month theme,"Join the Voices for Recovery: Visible, Vocal, Valuable,"highlights the value of peer support by educating, mentoring and helping others.
The theme invites individuals in recovery and their support systems to be catalysts and active change-agents in communities, and in civic and advocacy engagements. It encourages individuals to start conversations about the prevention, treatment and recovery of behavioral health conditions at earlier stages of life.
PRO-ACT Recovery Walks!
Is a Fundraiser
for PRO-ACT and The Council
The Recovery Walk has several goals: to show that recovery is real--it's happening NOW; so that the joyful solidarity of 23,000 or more people can provide hope to others; to help reduce the stigma of the disease of addiction; to educate the media; to honor people and organizations that provide services for the recovery community; and to honor those who have not survived this disease.
Hand in hand with those goals, the Walk is a fundraiser so that PRO-ACT can continue to expand our services to the growing number of individuals and families who wish to access and sustain long-term recovery. We need your financial support to do that.
