Due to the unpredictability of the COVID virus, we made a difficult decision to cancel the annual Salt Lake County Recovery Day event held in September during National Recovery Month. In the true spirit of our personal experiences and moving through acceptance and change, we are inspired to create new ways to celebrate recovery in our Utah communities.
This year our theme is Utah Voices for Recovery Celebrating Connections, intentionally highlighting prevention, treatment, and recovery for people who are affected by substance use and addiction. USARA is excited to host events that will be entertaining, inspiring, and empowering to celebrate individuals in recovery and recognize the contributions of family members, friends, service providers, and allies like you. Our recovery community is stronger when we join together to raise awareness and connect with others to heal from the impact of addiction. We hope you will join us in celebrating the thousands of Utah lives who are changed by many pathways of recovery.
