National Recovery Month celebrates the millions of Americans who are in recovery from mental and substance use disorders, reminding us that treatment is effective and that people can and do recover. It also serves to help reduce the stigma and misconceptions that cloud public understanding of mental and substance use disorders, potentially discouraging others from seeking help.
For the 30th anniversary, there is a new logo which adds the “r” symbol, representing “r is for Recovery”.
Recovery Walk – Summit County
Walk to the Dr. Bob Smith House, the founder of Alcoholics Anonymous, and Mount Peace cemetery where he is buried. An inspiring event with music, local food trucks and other festivities, as well as booths with information about OhioGuidestone services.
Recovery is Beautiful Festival – Toledo
A festival created to encourage fun while helping to increase awareness and understanding of mental health and substance use issues. OhioGuidestone employees will be offering face painting for children and providing information on Substance Use Disorder (SUD) services. Our team is also part of the planning council for the annual event.
