6th Annual Recovery Walk
The walk is to bring attention to the destructive forces of drug abuse. The Turning Point strives to raise awareness and open the doors to recovery by eliminating the prejudice that has followed the disease of addiction; a disease that shows no prejudice to any walk of life or background. With the removal of shame comes the hope for survival and acceptance of the disease can be humbling to the soul and in turn can be empowering those in need to seek help.
Many lives have been destroyed by substance use disorder. Too often this disease is perceived as deserved and shameful, leaving families and friends to grieve in silence or a person with the substance use disorder alone to struggle to recover.
