Recovery Day

Imagine a community that promotes a safe and supportive environment to talk about addictions and recovery.

Recovery saves lives and builds communities. During the month of September, communities across Canada celebrate the hope and reality of recovery from addiction and shine a light on the many pathways to increased wellness.


About Recovery Day

Recovery Day is organized by a coalition of community organizations and led by the Drug Awareness Committee and the Thunder Bay Drug Strategy. Our goal is to build awareness, challenge stigma surrounding addiction and celebrate the role that recovery plays in every community member’s life. You can connect with DAC on Facebook or Instagram.
