September is Recovery Awareness Month. Those of us working in the Hamilton Addiction services are proud to honour and celebrate the men, women and youth who are reaching out, giving back, embracing life and making a significant mark in their community through their recovery efforts. Recovery is Possible. Every stage of the journey matters and if you are struggling with addiction, you are not alone. We come together at our Annual event to hear stories of inspiration, share music and spoken word and are delighted to showcase the therapeutic value of the arts in this journey. The Recovery Awareness Day Committee seeks sponsorship to ensure any person who would like to attend and also are putting a call out to the recovery community for anyone who would like to display their artwork, of any medium or be a part of our celebration.
