For the 5th year running CAPE TOWN will walk to celebrate Recovery from alcoholism, addiction and mental illness.
*** IN 2019 WE ARE CHANGING OUR ROUTE ***
When we walk together to celebrate recovery we raise awareness, challenge stigma & strengthen community. Ultimately celebrating recovery from alcoholism, addiction and mental illness make us stronger.
Being in recovery is not a requirement to be part of the Recovery Walk in Cape Town.
Being supportive if recovery is.
This is an opportunity for anyone in recovery, their family and friends to show up and shout out for recovery. It is an opportunity for anyone who works in the field of healthcare to join in and celebrate together to show that we do recover.
Celebrating Recovery. Together Our Voices Are Stronger.
We walk to show that recovery from alcoholism, addiction and mental illness is a lived reality in millions of people’s lives here in Cape Town and throughout the world.
We walk to show that we are real people and that there are a diversity of recovery solutions.
We walk to counter the shame and stigma and to challenge any public attempt to dehumanise, objectify and demonise people with alcoholism, addiction and mental illness.
We walk to celebrate our own and other’s recoveries, to recognise the people who work within the field of healthcare and to show our solidarity with international recovery movements.
We are inspired by the Global Recovery Movement that claims September as its month. This has been happening for 30 years where recovery is highlighted, where to find help is highlighted and where recovery voices are heard.
SEPTEMBER IS RECOVERY MONTH!
