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.

RDO2015 WELCOMES THE CANADIAN ADDICTION COUNSELLORS CERTIFICATION FEDERATION (CACCF) AS A COMMUNITY PARTNER

The Canadian Addiction Counsellors Certification Federation (CACCF) has been certifying addiction professionals for thirty years. CACCF’s purpose is the protection of the public through ensuring the highest standards of care are provided to those individuals and families suffering from an addiction. That is accomplished by an internationally recognized process of evaluating an addiction worker’s knowledge and competency.

CACCF is a strong supporter of Recovery Awareness and the reduction of societal stigma by sharing of the positive life experiences of the multitude of people in recovery from this devastating disease . The basic message is that recovery is a reality and that treatment works. We applaud the leadership taken by the Ottawa Recovery Day Committee and are proud to be in partnership with this very important event.
