National Recovery Month events, such as this one, raise awareness of substance use and co-occurring disorders as they celebrate recovery.

Proceeds from this event will benefit Freedom House, which is dedicated to the education, referral and recovery of those in our community who have been impacted by substance use and co-occurring disorders.  This event is an effort to raise awareness and reduce the stigma associated with this disease.
