Recovery Advocacy Day 2022!


Recovery Vermont invites you to join us for Recovery Day, an annual advocacy celebration to honor the power of substance use disorder recovery.

Recovery Day will be held on Wednesday, February 16th from 9am to 1pm on Zoom. Recovery Day is for everyone – from recovery supporters to people who are curious about their own recovery. Join us for a day of networking, testimony, personal stories, and recovery resources from around the state! Come be loud and proud – your presence is your voice – and demonstrate the fact that RECOVERY IS POSSIBLE! We will hear from state legislators, Vermont’s Recovery Centers, statewide recovery and recovery-adjacent resources such as recovery housing, employment, corrections, and so many more. Awards will be presented to champions and leaders in the recovery movement.

In 2022, more than ever, the recovery community must join together to support those struggling and in need. Although we cannot physically gather together at the Statehouse in person this year, we will come together online to celebrate the work of this amazing community! We are so inspired by the work the recovery community continues to do, day in and day out. Your stories, your strength, and your dedication to helping others – to lift others up – is truly inspirational. 

Looking forward to seeing you on February 16th! Be sure to register below.
