Recovery Day Ottawa

OTTAWA CITY HALL - SEPT | 23 | 2017 - HÔTEL DE VILLE

Join with us for the official Recovery Day Ottawa celebration in the National Capital at Ottawa City Hall, on Saturday, September 24, 2016.

During the month of September, Canadians are gathering to build awareness, challenge societal stigma, and celebrate the role that recovery plays in improving the lives of individuals, families, and communities.

We envision a world in which recovery from addiction is a common, celebrated reality - a world where all individuals will have access to the support they need when seeking help.

We believe by speaking out as people living in recovery, or as family, friends and supporters of those affected by addiction, we save lives.

Through our personal stories and shared experience, we hope to inspire others to join us. Together, we demonstrate the power and proof of recovery from addiction.

WHO IS AN ALLY?

A Recovery Ally may be someone in recovery, but not necessarily! Allies are also family and friends, service providers and professionals in the field, community groups and concerned citizens who are passionate about our cause.

A Recovery Ally may play the role of a community partner, a volunteer, a speaker, a donor, someone who helps spread our message, or simply comes out to support us on Recovery Day!

We need your support to help reduce stigma towards individuals affected by addiction, and raise awareness about the many pathways to recovery in our community. The reality is that addiction touches all of our lives, and we believe the recovery involves a community solution.
