Each year ‘Faces and Voices of Recovery UK’ (FAVOR UK) members guided by the bidding process choose one UK city or Town to host the National Recovery Walk/Event. This takes place each September and raises awareness of substance use disorders and recovery from addiction. Their 2021 UK Recovery Walk took place on the 18th of September in Newcastle-Upon-Tyne.
The focus of the UK Recovery Walk is a public education and outreach campaign that communicates by offering living proof of the reality of long-term addiction recovery. It also highlights the many pathways and styles of such recovery to the public, policymakers, the media and communities.
Well done to all those who have taken the brave steps on the path to recovery. Newcastle RRT team were proud to support the cause by providing catering following the walk.
