Recovery Rally on the Rock has long history in Rockford

Posted:

An annual celebration recognizes recovery from substance use and mental health conditions.

Rockford's 5th Annual Recovery Rally on the Rock took place Saturday from 11:00 a.m. to 3:00 p.m. on the banks of the Rock River at the Madison Street Trolley Station.

The event celebrates recovery from alcohol and drug addiction while raising awareness of local resources to prevent and treat substance use and mental health conditions.

Co-sponsored by TASC, Inc. (Treatment Alternatives for Safe Communities), Recovery Rally on the Rock is part of Recovery Month, a national observance led by the Substance Abuse and Mental Health Services Administration (SAMHSA), within the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services (HHS).

The observance raises awareness of mental and substance use disorders, celebrates individuals in long-term recovery, and acknowledges the work of prevention, treatment, and recovery support services.
