September was recovery month and what better way to celebrate all of those in recovery than having an annual event! Taking part and sharing the triumphs of those in recovery with fellow providers gives us the opportunity to share stories and information with the community. Our community partners at Mohave Area Partnership Promoting Educated Decisions (MAPPED), a local coalition motivated to empower the community in healthy decisions that impact substance use and other destructive behaviors, is the host each year of Recovery in the Park. Focusing our efforts on education, prevention, and treatment through collaboration amongst local community partners, we proudly participate each year with a table full of information and goodies as well as donations of hotdogs and buns! The event offered raffles, prizes, games, and speakers including representation from the Mohave County Board of Supervisors and Bullhead City Mayor Tom Brad. We were honored to be a part of the fun while also celebrating the gift of recovery and the beauty that it brings!
