"Each year we bring our fifth graders to experience the Adventure Learning Center's alpine tower, giant swing, and team building exercises. They always come back energized, proud, and united! I believe it is one of the best field trips for kids! The staff is always positive, encouraging and totally dedicated to the kids. "

Recovery Month Celebration 2015

Recovery_Month_2015_bannerMillions of lives in America have been transformed through recovery. Recovery Month is a national observance held every September to educate individuals that substance use treatment and mental health services can enable those with a mental and/or substance use disorder to live a healthy and rewarding life as well as an opportunity for everyone to celebrate these accomplishments.

The Cape Fear Recovery Month committee will host the annual Recovery Month Celebration on Sunday, September 20 from noon to 3 p.m. at the Wrightsville Beach Park. The theme for Recovery Month 2015 is “Join the Voices for Recovery: Visible, Vocal, Valuable!” This year’s theme highlights the value of peer support in educating, mentoring, and helping others. Join us to celebrate healthy family fun!

With more than 600,000 people who self-identify as in recovery in North Carolina this annual celebration in our community allows us to recognize those who are in recovery, and share with others that recovery is possible. The event will feature local speakers discussing personal experiences with recovery from mental and substance use disorders, resources and provider booths, and live music. This is a community-wide event for a community-wide topic. And all are invited to celebrate and learn more about recovery.
