Recovery Day 2023!

VERMONT IS RECOVERY STRONG

Recovery Vermont invites you to join us for Recovery Day, an annual advocacy celebration to honor the power of substance use disorder recovery. This year’s Recovery Day will be held on Wednesday, February 15th; additional details will be added soon!

Recovery Day 2023 is a celebration of recovery and the many pathways of the recovery journey, where we can listen to one another’s experiences and honor powerful individual transformations.

Recovery Day is also an opportunity to learn about the strengths and challenges of the many organizations that offer recovery support in our communities, and to envision what “recovery-friendly communities” could look like across Vermont.

Would you like to share art, poetry, or words and photos for recognition or in memory of someone during Recovery Day?

We warmly invite and welcome your participation!

During Recovery Day we will display a slideshow of art, poetry, or words and photos recognizing individual contributions to the recovery community or in memory of those we have lost.  Please send us your submissions.

All submissions will be displayed in a slideshow during the Recovery Day event, and the slideshow will be available on our website following the event. We will credit you for your submission, including your name on the slide, unless you tell us that you would like to remain anonymous.
