A Forever Recovery has seen thousands of lives get saved by their rehab program, so they know that people actually can do something about it.

In recent news, A Forever Recovery, a reputable drug and alcohol addiction rehabilitation center based out of Battle Creek, Michigan, participated in this year’s Rally for Recovery held in Lansing, Michigan. Lansing, being the state capital for the state of Michigan, is the state’s hotspot for political and cultural movements of all shapes and sizes. This is the city to get things done, and A Forever Recovery was more than happy to jump on the bandwagon and contribute and help out with this pro-recovery event.

The Rally for Recovery event has been going on for some time now and has been a big rally item all across the country too for that matter. It is actually based off of a similar Canadian event that has been occurring annually in Canada since 2012. “Recovery Day” is an annual, Canadian event, first held on September 30, 2012, which demonstrates and celebrates the ability and the intention of those with drug, alcohol, and behavioral addictions to achieve long-term sobriety and to live productive and healthy lives into the future and for the rest of their lives too. The event was held in 12 major Canadian cities in 2013, 25 cities in 2014, and 30 cities in 2015, with it now expanding down into the states as, “Rally for Recovery.” Recovery Day is an important holiday for Canadians too, and now it is an important crusade for Americans as well.

The main goal and key behind A Forever Recovery’s involvement in this year’s Rally for Recovery in Lansing, Michigan was to:

“Remove the stigma associated with individuals who are struggling with drug and alcohol addiction. They are not just addicts. They are not just labels. They are not the drugs that they take or the crimes that they commit. They are individual human beings who need help to beat their addictions once and for all.”

A Forever Recovery has been working tirelessly for years now to not only free as many people as possible from the confines and the restraints of addiction but to also make a point to free as many people as possible from the negative stereotyping of addicts as being nothing but criminal druggies and worthless, degenerate, time wasting people. A Forever Recovery has seen thousands of lives get saved by their rehab program, so they know that people actually can do something about it. They see that people can change and improve their condition in life, so the stereotyping and stigma against people who suffer with addiction is actually very unnecessary and in fact very dangerous and unhelpful.

Rally for Recovery is just getting started in the U.S. The event in Canada that it was based off of was exemplary, and AFR is hoping to be able to continue to make Rally for Recovery just as exemplary.
