2020 has been a tough year for everyone, but more so for people in recovery. It’s taken a lot of effort to look past the negative and find the positives. But National Recovery Month is here and it’s time for reflection, observance, and a celebration of how far you have come in your recovery – whether you’ve been in sobriety for two weeks or ten years.
While Recovery Month certainly looks different this year as we maintain social distancing guidelines, there are multiple ways to observe and celebrate your or a loved one’s recovery.
Our peer recovery centers, Everyday Miracles in Worcester, New Beginnings in Lawrence, and The Recovery Connection in Marlborough are hosting virtual events for Recovery Month.
Making Connections in Recovery Virtual Walk
Celebratory walks look a little bit different this year during COVID-19. For National Recovery Month, our peer recovery centers in Lawrence, Worcester, and Marlborough are hosting a virtual walk over Zoom! Log into the Zoom meeting via a phone or tablet and get walking!
Date and time: September 30th starting at 11am
Location: We’ll broadcast over Zoom, but participants will walk in their own neighborhoods between 11am and 12pm.
Following the walk, from 12pm to 2pm, the centers will share testimonials and play music over Zoom. We hope you join us for a socially distant celebration of recovery!
Virtual Recovery Meetings
There’s no time like National Recovery Month to make new connections or re-acquaint yourself with your peers. Join our peer recovery centers in daily Zoom meetings to talk about your recovery story and encourage others. To join us for virtual recovery meetings, follow our Facebook pages and websites for monthly Zoom schedules:
Even during this socially distant time, there’s something out there for everyone to celebrate their recovery! For more information about our peer recovery centers, visit each of their websites:
