Turning Point Center to Celebrate Recovery Month
The Turning Point Center of Bennington County is hosting two events to celebrate Recovery Month to bring awareness of addiction and recovery. This year’s theme is “Join the Voices for Recovery: Our Families, Our Stories, Our Recovery,’ to highlight the importance of families, communities and individuals sharing stories of recovery to encourage others to make a personal connection with the recovery. The prevalence of mental and/or substance use disorder is high, but many people do recover.
On Friday, September 16, at 7 p.m., the community is invited to Turning Point Center for the showing of ‘The Anonymous People,’ a feature documentary about the 23+ million Americans living in long-term recovery from addiction to alcohol and other drugs. Courageous addiction recovery advocates have begun to fuel a passionate new public recovery movement that will transform public perception – and ultimately, the response to the addiction crisis. The Bennington County third annual Recovery Walk will be held on Saturday, September 17, beginning at 1 p.m. at the old Junior High School on Main Street in Bennington. Two community members will tell their own stories on addiction and recovery. For information, stop by the Turning Point at 465 Main Street, Bennington, or call them at 802-236- 4967.
