Recovery and the 76ers Basketball:There's more to Recovery than Just Making Meetings
During a meeting a few years ago a few members who were in early recovery asked the question "Is there more to recovery than just making meetings?" That is a question that many people would like to ask however don't have the courage or don't know how to ask.
The answer is, Yes... there is more to recovery than just making meetings. It is living life on life's terms and having fun. For many living in recovery is new! It may have been a long time since experiencing that feeling of joy and laughter. Its new way of life.
A few ways of having fun in recovery can be attending the PRO-ACT's Recovery Walk, going to a PRO-ACT's Night Out at a Phillies baseball game, and spending Saturday, March 12, 2016 attending "PRO-ACT Goes to a 76ers Basketball Game."
Tickets are just $20 which will help provide financial support to The Council. Ticket donations are also being accepted which will go to members of the recovery community who may not have the financial means at this time to participate in this event.
Let's Have Some Fun in Recovery It Should Be More Than Just Going To Meetings! Recovery Works!!

September 17, 2016
Great Plaza, Penns Landing
On September 17, 2016 PRO-ACT will host its 15th Annual Recovery Walk. Save the date and get involved! This event needs you.
Last year we hosted the largest Recovery Month Event in the world. Thanks to our presenting sponsor, Philadelphia Department of Behavioral Health and intellectual disAbility Services (DBHIDS), and many others, there were over 25,000 participants. Those walking for recovery included dignitaries from the city, surrounding counties and state and Michael Botticelli, Director of National Drug Control Policy at the White House.
The entertainment included the Mummers, Super Heroes and Heroines, the Recovery Idol finalist selection, Doug Lyon & The Zone and wrapping up with the mayor of Philadelphia, Michael Nutter, dropping the mic with a rendition of "Rapper's Delight."
That was last year. This year will be even bigger! An event this size requires a lot volunteers, time and planning.
The planning has begun and we're looking for volunteers who would like to be a part of and to participate in the process to get ready forSeptember 17th, 2016.
