The 2022 5K Forward for Recovery is the North Country’s premiere event to celebrate recovery and support substance use prevention. During the three decades of Recovery Month, millions of people have found inspiration to face their challenges and learn about new ways to live a happy and fulfilling life. This year’s theme is Join the Voices for Recovery: Together We Are Stronger.  As anyone in recovery knows, it takes support from many to face the challenges of finally getting sober. This year’s focus in Recovery Month is on the first responders, healthcare workers, community leaders, and advocates helping to support recovery in our society.
After a two-year COVID break, Champlain Valley Family Center is excited to host the 7 th annual FKFWD for Recovery Walk/Run on Saturday, September 17, 2022 at the Plattsburgh City Beach. Since 1982, CVFC has been providing substance use prevention and treatment services throughout Clinton County.
