Substance use and recovery Listen and Learn Brown Bag lunch series
This event is part of the City of Boston's Recovery Month programming for September 2017. We have a robust schedule of recovery events throughout the month of September. These events aim to combat social stigma, celebrate recovery, and promote overall awareness.
“Recovery Month is a time where the City of Boston celebrates and actively promotes Boston’s outstanding recovery community,” said Mayor Martin J. Walsh. “Recovery allies and individuals in recovery embody resilience and exemplify that no one is beyond hope.”
