DC Walk 4 ReCovery


The Reason for the Walk

We walk 4 ReCovery  in awareness that over 8.9 million persons have co-occurring disorders of addiction and mental health;  and only 7.4% of individuals receive treatment for both conditions while 55.8% receiving no treatment at all. 

  We walk 4 ReCovery seeking new innovative ways  for solutions to those who are bullied, and  for those who struggle and suffer in silence.

We walk 4 ReCovery  to encourage our  Youth, and we walk 4 our Young Adults, Seniors Citizens, LGBTQ, Veterans, the Homeless and our Returning Citizens that  there is HOPE; Don’t Give Up!

We walk 4 ReCovery for the memory of those who have died  and we walk 4 those lost  from the opioids, crack, meth, and K2 epidemics– so we walk 4 those who want change.

We walk 4 ReCovery with courage to move mountains that through faith in a living God, recovery is possible for [ALL] forms of addiction, mental health disorders, disabilities, homeless, eating disorders,  those who are bullied and those who live with suicidal ideations.

We walk 4 ReCovery to remove the stigma and the shame  creating a national co-occurring disorders integrative care and treatment  vision board entitled:  What ReCovery looks like to me  and  present it as {solutions} to the  members of Congress.

We walk 4 ReCovery  on the National Mall with dance and with laughter and or tears  to the event  theme song– I’m Still Standing  DC Electric Slide Line Dance in collaboration to  seeking change and transformation in the behavioral health system.

  DC Walk 4 ReCovery– a walk for awareness, education, hope and solutions to share a national message to our country and the world…Never give up! there is help, hope and treatment out there. But most importantly we walk 4 ReCovery to let others know you are not alone!
