Welcome to Recovery Month 2020!
Each September, Recovery Month is a time to promote and support evidence-based treatment and recovery, the strong and proud recovery community, and the dedication of service providers and community members across the country who make recovery in all its forms possible. Now in its 31st year, Recovery Month 2020’s focus is “Join the Voices for Recovery: Celebrating Connections.” Read more here.
Follow Meadows Behavioral Healthcare on our various social media channels for recovery-related resources, information, and inspiration throughout the month.
Join The Meadows Virtual Marathon
You’re invited to mark Recovery Month by taking part in The Meadows Virtual Marathon. Are you up for the challenge? Simply complete the length of a marathon in any way you want over the course of the month — walk, jog, or run, in your neighborhood, with friends, with your dog, or by yourself and at your own pace. No crowds. No PortaPotties. Just an achievement you can be proud of. Participants have until September 30 — the end of Recovery Month — to complete 26.2 miles. A registration fee of $25 covers the cost of a commemorative race bib, medal, and our new water bottle. We all know that recovery isn’t a sprint, it’s a marathon, so lace up those running shoes and hit the trail with us! For more info, visit our Meadows Virtual Marathon page, or sign up now at runsignup.com.
Share Your Story!
We’re looking for positive testimonials of recovery to inspire others. Do you want to share your experience in one of our Meadows Behavioral Healthcare programs? Send in your story (100 words or less) and we’ll send you a T-shirt to the first 40 alumni members as a thank you!
We may also select your testimonial to animate for our next video, sharing it on social media and our websites. Check out our first one here!
