“Addiction is not a spectator sport – eventually the whole family gets to play.”
 
“Addiction is not a spectator sport – eventually the whole family gets to play”. As the child of an alcoholic parent I understand the impact that addiction and mental illness have on a family. I got involved with Recovery Resources to work with an agency that enables people to overcome addiction and mental illness so that families can mend. I got involved with Recovery Resources so that children can feel secure.
 
I got involved with Recovery Resources so that those in recovery can feel strong, valued and needed by their families. In fact, family support and involvement is what makes the Run for Recovery so remarkable. On August 20th while I run my very first 5K, my husband and daughters will be there to support me.
 
So, while my girls will enjoy the day with music, face-painting and the Children’s Museum, I will be celebrating those that have fought so hard to begin and continue their recovery.
 
Join us in celebrating those on their journey and promoting awareness and encouragement for those who aren’t there yet. ?#?R4R? ?#?HopeInTheLand? REGISTER!

Through community awareness and available resources we can make a change in this devestating issue.
