Recovery walk set for Sept. 24
Frontier Health’s Virginia Services and the recovery community are planning the fifth annual Recovery in Action Walk in Norton on Wednesday, Sept. 24 at 6 p.m.
The walk will begin at Southwest Insurance Agency across from J.I. Burton High School and end at Norton United Methodist Church. Free food and beverages will be provided following the walk.
National Recovery Month in September is a reminder that recovery from addiction is possible. Prevention works, self-help groups and treatment are effective and people can and do recover. People in recovery experience improved relationships, better mental and physical well-being, and newfound abilities to deal with problems in a healthy manner. Treatment and recovery require hard work, dedication and a willingness to change.
Parking for the Action Walk will be at Southwest Insurance across from the high school. Please do not park on the grass. For more information, call Karrie Potter, 276/523-8300.
