September is the 30th anniversary of National Recovery Month, marking three decades of spreading the message that treatment is effective, and people can and do recover—every day. “Join the Voices for Recovery: Together We Are Stronger,” this year’s theme, emphasizes the need to share resources and build networks across the country to support the many paths to recovery. Link House Inc. is participating in several ways, including capping off the month with Links of Hope…no doubt a memory-maker of an evening and their commitment to HOPE in recovery.
Links of Hope will be emceed by comedian and founder of Humor for Humanity, Jimmy Tingle, with opening remarks offered by Governor Charlie Baker. Guests will also hear from former NH Supreme Chief Justice John Broderick, who will share his story as a parent challenged by a son with mental health and addiction issues. This year, Link House Inc. will also present the inaugural Nick Costello Heroes in Recovery Award, to be given annually, to an individual or organization that has made significant contributions to the world of substance use, addiction and recovery. This year’s 1st award recipient is Frank Cousins, Jr., Greater Newburyport Chamber of Commerce & Industry’s President.
Tickets are $75. For more info, please visit www.linkhouseinc.org/hope.
