CADT Hosts Twin Port’s First Walk for Recovery

DULUTH, MINN—The Twin Port’s first Walk for Recovery will take place Saturday, September 14. Sponsored by the Center for Alcohol and Drug Treatment (CADT), the two-mile walk will begin in Canal Park and proceed down Duluth’s Lakewalk.

“The Walk for Recovery is for the whole community,” said Tina Silverness, CADT chief operating officer. “It’s meant to be a celebration of the freedom of recovery, a day to generate hope that recovery is possible, to show support for people no matter where they are in their recovery and reduce the stigma associated with alcohol and drug problems.”

Walkers will gather in Canal Park for the Walk for Recovery at 9:30 a.m. The two-mile walk will begin at 10:00 a.m.

The Center for Alcohol and Drug Treatment is a nonprofit community agency founded in 1961 that provides treatment and recovery services for people with chemical use addictions and the problems associated with drug and alcohol abuse and gambling problems. Its programs include residential inpatient treatment; outpatient treatment; a detoxification facility; DWI programs and medically assisted recovery; and long-term residential programs and aftercare.
