It’s hard to believe that a whole year has gone by since our last Recovery Day here in Vancouver. Some of you may remember my VO blog post about it at that time.
What a great day it was. There was excitement in the air as those in recovery, as well as many of their loved ones, laughed and sang and danced together on the lawn of the Art Gallery in Downtown Vancouver. Children enjoyed the face painting and balloons that were freely given. Many addiction resources such as treatment centers, detoxes, and recovery homes manned their tables full of information for those who were looking for assistance with their own addiction or for someone they love. There was also an opportunity for loved ones to talk to therapists like myself, who specialize in working with those who are in significant relationships with people who have addictions.
