Goals for the Community Walk For Recovery are:

  • To Recognize that Substance Use Disorders (SUD) are an illness of the body, mind and soul that responds to treatment and support.

    • Treating people with SUD and supporting them in recovery returns them to the mainstream as productive members of society.

    • Marginalizing and isolating people with addictions through incarceration without treatment does little to change behaviors and is more costly than treatment options. 

  • To raise funds for the Grand Monadnock Rotary Charitable Fund to support the agencies that deliver regional Prevention, Treatment and Recovery programs in schools and communities throughout the region.

  • To raise awareness of regional Prevention, Treatment and Recovery options on the front lines of the SUD crisis, and

  • To destigmatize the way the public views treatment and recovery for the one in ten among us that currently suffers from a substance use disorder.

    • The public should welcome people in recovery back into the mainstream with support and services.

    • Recovery is having a job, a place to live, and a welcoming community to belong to. 

Come meet others who share your goals and concerns, and celebrate the fact that people can recover and do recover from SUD!
