The Pittsburgh Recovery Walk is free and open to the public. Everyone whose life has been touched by addiction or recovery is invited to join our city-wide celebration. Where? The Pittsburgh Recovery Walk begins at 11th and Waterfront and proceeds to Market Square, where there will be a Recovery Expo with speakers, entertainment, and activities. Why? Addiction affects everyone – but so does recovery. How can you take part? Join us! This event is completely free!
