Worcester Cares About Recovery Walk

On behalf of the board of directors at "Yes To Recovery", we would like to thank you for your support and participation at our Recovery Walk on Saturday September 17th, 2022.

Hundreds of people representing the many faces of recovery showed up and walked alongside our Co-Chairs District Attorney Joe Early and Dr. Mattei Castiel. 

It takes a truly collaborative effort from the recovery community, treatment agencies, families of those in recovery, elected and appointed officials to combat the deadly disease of addiction and promote a drug-free lifestyle for those seeking it. Our Recovery Walk was instrumental in displaying that in public.

We hope to see you again at future community events.

What is Recovery Month?

National Recovery Month (Recovery Month), which started in 1989, is a national observance held every September.  Recovery Month celebrates the gains made by those in recovery from substance use and mental health, just as we celebrate improvements made by those who are managing other health conditions such as hypertension, diabetes, asthma, and heart disease.

Recovery Walk Co-Chairs

We are grateful for our Recovery Walk Co-Chairs Dr. Mattei Castiel, MD and District Attorney Joseph Early, Jr.  Both have worked tirelessly as advocates for recovery and the under-served within our Worcester community.

Come join us Sept. 17th for our Recovery Walk beginning at 11am followed by a Celebration at Institute Park at 12pm.  Cookout, Outdoor Concert, Speakers and Events FREE for the whole family!

We Need Your Support Today!
