Thousands Expected to Attend CCAR’s 14th Annual “Recovery Walks!” Friday, September 27 to Support Recovery From Alcohol and Other Drug Addiction
Date:8/29/2013

Hartford, Connecticut (PRWEB) August 29, 2013

Recovery Walks! is a highly anticipated celebratory event for those in recovery from addiction to alcohol and drugs, as well as for their families, friends, and supporters. In addition to walking, participants will “put a face on recovery” as they share how their journey has brought hope and redemption back into their lives. This year features the Faces of Recovery photo display and Artists in Recovery exhibit to reflect images of the recovery process. This is an inspirational time for the Greater Hartford community to come together and support those who transform their lives through the healing power of recovery.

The event will host live music by Shaded Soul in addition to exhibits, arts and crafts. This year, Connecticut Governor Dannel P. Malloy, Hartford Mayor Pedro E. Segarra, and Patricia Rehmer, Commissioner of the Connecticut Department of Mental Health and Addiction Services will be speaking at the event.

Retired probate judge, lawyer, former state legislator, and person in recovery since 1981, CCAR Board of Directors William Leary said that the event is a highlight of CCAR’s many programs to promote recovery through advocacy, education, and service.

“The annual CCAR Recovery Walks! has become such an important event in my life. What a thrill it is to walk with my peers in recovery and show the world that recovery is entirely possible and that CCAR is such a positive force.”

Phillip A. Valentine, Executive Director of CCAR and person in recovery since 1987, said, “At our first Walk in 2000 we hoped for 50 people to attend. Amazingly, 700 persons in recovery, friends, families and the public showed up. Just by attending, everyone at the Walk proclaims the message of hope to the person new in recovery that ‘if all these people can recover, so can I’. The growth of CCAR and the turnout at the Walk are evidence that persons in recovery hold jobs,
