Last month was the 25th anniversary of National Recovery Month, to celebrate those who have achieved freedom from drug addiction. It is also when our community takes time to highlight the achievements of those who have not only had success in their recovery, but have also shown others that there is hope and overcoming addiction is possible. National Recovery Month in Broward County hosts an annual celebration locally in conjunction with the many events that occur as this month is recognized nationwide.

Cornerstone joined in Broward National Recovery Month on September 20th at Markham Park to celebrate with a big event that attracted over 700 people and was filled with family fun activities. Families enjoyed a petting zoo, bounce house, face painting, as well as free ice cream and pizza. Broward County Sheriff Scott Israel spoke during the event and the Broward Sheriff’s Office Mounted Patrol was on hand. There were continuous raffle prizes all day long and live music was provided by “Roosevelt Collier’s Funk Soul Revival” band and songwriter and Aerosmith guitarist Richie Supa. Throughout the day speakers shared their own messages of strength and hope. The national event was sponsored by The Substance Abuse and Mental Health Administration (SAMSHA). Our staff here really resonates with the theme of the event, which is to stress the importance of togetherness and unity within the recovery community.
