2017 York & Adams County Recovery Events

Addiction knows no racial, cultural, gender, age or economic boundaries and can impact any family throughout our region. With proper care and support, individuals can and do recover. Treatment is effective. Prevention and intervention work.

 

Annual Event:

September is Recovery Month, a nationwide effort to heighten the awareness of the disease of Addiction and by doing so, educating the public about addiction as well as helping to reduce the stigma of getting help. Through these events, we celebrate with those who have found a pathway to recovery, stand with those who are still working on or seeking their recovery and recall those who have fallen to the disease of addiction.
