Join the Voices for Recovery: Healing Lives, Families and Communities
As part of National Recovery Month in September, CCHS' Alcohol and Other Drugs (AOD) division invites the public to Join the Voices of Recovery national celebration by participating in the Recovery Walk on Sept. 17 in Concord.
The annual event raises awareness that alcohol and drug use disorders can be treated and friends, families and communities play a critical role in recovery.
This year's theme is: Join the Voices for Recovery: Healing Lives, Families and Communities. An estimated 2.6 million Californians are currently using illicit drugs. Treatment often plays a significant role in the recovery process and more than 240,000 Californians are admitted to alcohol and other drug addiction facilities each year.
On September 13, the Alcohol and Other Drugs (AOD) Advisory Board, the Diablo Valley Ranch's Alumni Association, our AOD Services Division, John Muir Center for Recovery and AOD's System of Care Providers will receive a proclamation from the Board of Supervisors recognizing National Recovery Month.
The public is encouraged to participate in the 1.7-mile walk and attend various activities sponsored throughout Contra Costa by the recovery community.
