Recovery Awareness Month

September is National Recovery Month, and while we're all operating a little differently right now, recovery is real. Throughout the month, RAD is holding events to celebrate the gains made by those in recovery and educate our community on substance use treatments and mental health services.

Together we can break the stigma and enable those with a mental and/or substance use disorders to live healthy and rewarding lives.

Virtual Walk for Recovery

September 19 from 10am to 2pm

Your health and safety are our top priorities, so this year in lieu of a large in-person walk, we invite you to walk with your friends, your family, or by yourself to stand for everyone in recovery today. Walk through your neighborhood wearing your recovery swag, and take a picture or video of your walk. Don't forget to tag Recovery Alliance Duluth on Facebook or Instagram, and use hashtags #recoveryisRAD, #recoveryisEVERYWHERE, #recoveryisREAL to help spread the word.

RAD will be walking around the city of Duluth with 100 purple balloons. If you spot us snap a picture and tag Recovery Alliance Duluth on Facebook. The person who submits the most pictures in different locations will win a $100 gift card.

Recovery Swag

Kick-off Recovery Month and pick up your RAD swag bag. The swag bags are a drawstring bag that contains a t-shirt, bracelet, Frisbee, sponsorship information, and a yard sign.

To ensure your safety, pop-up sites have been set up at various locations across the Northland for RAD event participants to pick up their recovery gear. To find a pickup time and location that fits your needs, click here.
