About Heroes in Recovery
According to the Substance Abuse and Mental Health Services Administration (SAMHSA), 23 million people needed treatment last year and only 3 million sought help. That means 10 million Americans did not receive needed mental health care. The stigma associated with substance abuse and mental health disorders creates a significant barrier that keeps individuals and families from seeking help.
Heroes in Recovery is a grassroots movement intended to remove the social stigma associated with people who are in recovery, to recognize the heroic effort it takes to overcome the obstacles in seeking help, and to celebrate the act of preventing the past from kidnapping the future. While the movement initially focuses on those recovering from addictive behavior, it is meant also to recognize heroes recovering from many other types of disorders and trauma that can often accompany an addiction.
Each Heroes in Recovery 6K race serves as an educational tool for the community and also reminds individuals who are on a personal journey of recovery that many others are on that road with them.
