Recovering Addicts Aim

The event is for overcoming addicts to come together with their family and support groups to spread hope and encouragement for others struggling with alcohol and drug addiction.

Support is everything when it comes to fighting drug addiction. That’s why the Walk For Recovery is so vital for those struggling with substance abuse their families and the community. You can help rally around those who need it most at an upcoming event in the Triad later this month.

Fellow Hall Inc., will hold their second annual ‘Walk For Recovery’ event Sunday, April 29, at 2:00 pm at Center City Park in Downtown Greensboro.

The event is for recovering addicts to come together with their families and support groups to spread hope and encouragement for others struggling with alcohol and drug addiction.

“Many people do not know what successful recovery looks like. The ‘WALK FOR RECOVERY’ is about coming out in the open as living examples that recovery is real and obtainable, a live demonstration that recovered people can live happy and healthy lives,” said Mike Yow, Licensed Clinical Addiction Specialist.

Walkers for the event will participate in a 1-mile trek then return back to the park where those in recovery can share their personal stories and triumphs.

Freedom House, Wilmington Treatment Center, ARCA, Oxford House, and others will be in attendance for those interested in learning more about treatment and recovery.

“Alcoholics and addicts are worth helping; they can get their lives back and become engaged and productive members of our communities,” said Yow.

The recovery event will conclude with live music from Lyn Koonce, one of Greensboro’s up-and-coming local artists.
