Horizon celebrates Recovery Day

(HORIZON) September 13, 2019 - Horizon Health Network is celebrating Recovery Day with events in Moncton and Saint John. This national event recognizes and acknowledges the difficult journey to overcome addiction and celebrate recovery.

Events will take place in:

  • Moncton: Monday, September 16 from 11:00 a.m. - 1:00 p.m., Oak Lane, Downtown Moncton. Rain location is in the Peace Centre Atrium.
  • Saint John: Thursday, September 19 at noon, King's Square. Rain location is Market Square Atrium.

Horizon's Addictions and Mental Health, partner with various local organizations including the Salvus Clinic and Sophia Recovery Centre to help make the events a success. Participating organizations will provide information to the public on the services available to support addiction and recovery.

Recovery Day in Canada originated in British Columbia in 2012 and the event has grown larger each year, as people come together to celebrate their recovery and share their experience. The event allows people to engage, share and help break the stigma surrounding addiction and recovery.

As speakers share their journey to recovery, the event allows those with addictions, their family, friends and the greater community to come together to build awareness, challenge social stigma, and celebrate the role recovery plays in improving the lives of millions of Canadians.
