On Saturday, September 17, 2022, nearly 100 walkers (and a few dogs) shared in the Villa Veritas Annual Walk the Walk for Recovery, held at the Walkway Over the Hudson. It was a perfect day with a cool breeze and lots of sunshine.
This annual walk coincides with National Recovery Month in September which is designated to raise awareness, help reduce stigma and encourage those in need to seek assistance. Substance Use Disorder is a widespread crisis in America that affects 45 million people – one in three households, according to the National Institute on Health. Annually, more than 100,000 Americans die from drug overdoses and another 88,000 from alcohol-related causes.
Walk the Walk for Recovery supports, encourages and celebrates those in recovery and strives to deliver the simple, powerful message that treatment works and people can and do recover. Donations to the event help support Villa Veritas’ mission of providing chemically dependent men and women with inpatient recovery treatment to help them live life without addiction.
