Recovery Month Candlelight Vigil and FREE Narcan Distribution Event

September 16 @ 7:00 PM

National Recovery Month is a national observance held every September to educate Americans that substance use treatment and mental health services can enable those with a mental and/or substance use disorder to live a healthy and rewarding life. This vigil is to increase the awareness and understanding of mental & substance use disorders, to celebrate those people in recovery as well as their family members, and to highlight community resources available for a successful recovery.

We have a short presentation where community members share their inspiring stories of recovery, along with honor beads, rock painting, a basket raffle, and candles for the vigil.

• FREE T-shirts to the first 100 walkers
• FREE refreshments & snacks
• Community information tables
• Honor Beads
• Raffle Prizes
• FREE Mental Health Screening
• FREE Narcan

Guests are encouraged to bring lawn chairs. No registration is necessary; we hope to see you there!
