The Road to Recovery 2008: A Showcase of Events (Wrap Show)
Wednesday, November 5, 2008
In this program we will look at the array of events conducted in communities large and small as the country comes together in celebration of National Alcohol and Drug Addiction Recovery Month in September 2008. Individuals, families, and entire communities across the Nation unite under the theme, "Join the Voices of Recovery: Real People, Real Recovery." This program will showcase Recovery Month community forums, music-based activities, walks and runs for recovery, Major League Baseball games, and other uplifting events intended to raise awareness of recovery and increase accessibility to treatment. In addition, it will highlight the positive and affirming message that addiction is treatable and recovery is possible.
