Join DBHIDS and PRO-ACT to celebrate recovery and work to end the stigma surrounding substance use disorder. People have been walking in Recovery Walks! to support recovery from substance use disorder during September’s National Recovery Month for 20 years.
Everyone has a role to play in contributing to our community’s well-being. Recovery Walks! is one way we can do that. Together we can eliminate the shame and fear that affects attitudes about this disease, share our vision that recovery is possible for all and we can save lives! We can show our community leaders, our neighbors and the world that we are working together – and walking together – to end stigma! We can’t afford to be silent anymore.
Recovery Walks is the largest recovery awareness walk in the world and is a collaborative effort of DBHIDS, PRO-ACT, and other sponsors. Recovery Idol is a collaboration between DBHIDS, the Philadelphia Recovery Coalition (PRC), and The Dell Music Center. Recovery Idol is modelled after American Idol and is a singing competition to showcase the strength, resiliency, and talent of Philadelphia’s recovery community.
