EVENT: Rally 4 Recovery

DATE: September 14, 2019

LOCATION:  Providence, RI

EVENT DETAILS:

Rally4Recovery/Waterfire
The Rally4Recovery is Rhode Island’s largest celebration honoring National Recovery Month every September. It has grown each year since it was first held on a small patch of grass on the grounds of the Rhode Island Department of Behavioral Healthcare, Developmental Disabilities and Hospitals (BHDDH) in 2003. Beginning in 2006, the event was held in more public forums in Providence, and for the first time, was co-hosted by the newly-formed Rhode Island Recovery Month Coalition, a group from the State’s recovery community. The Coalition includes treatment providers, partners in government, family members, friends and advocates for recovery. Holding the event gives a voice to people in recovery and tells the public that treatment does work and recovery is possible.
