About This Activity

Roads 2 Recovery would like to invite you its First Annual 5k/1 mile walk for recovery.  Over 20,000 people in Central Virginia suffer from addiction to drugs and alcohol but did you know that there are as many people in long-term recovery as in active addiction.  Please join us on March 11, 2017 at Peaksview Park in Lynchburg in sharing the voice of these people in recovery and to help someone who may still be suffering.  The goal of this event is show the community that recovery is possible and to help fight the stigma that comes along with substance use disorder.

Roads to Recovery is a recovery community organization; an independent, nonprofit corporation led by people in and supportive of recovery. Our mission is to assist other people to find and sustain recovery. Our goal is to develop and mobilize resources to increase the prevalence and quality of long-term recovery from alcohol and other drug addiction. We focus on building services and supports to fill gaps in the system of care. Most people who drop out of treatment say they would have stayed if they could have received practical support with other areas of life, such as a job, getting their kids back, or housing.
