Recovery Advent Calendar

In a groundbreaking collaboration, a consortium of international towns and cities have joined forces to create an Inclusive Recovery Advent Calendar for 2023.

This collective effort aims to inspire people and reduce the stigma associated with recovery from alcohol and drug use.

Each day, a new window will be opened to reveal personal stories of triumph, recovery journeys, and the invaluable support that has played a pivotal role in helping individuals people overcome addiction. By sharing these heartfelt accounts, the participating cities aim to promote inclusivity, understanding, and compassion for those in recovery, and to inspire and sustain motivation and commitment to recovery.

Follow along every day throughout on social media on the hashtag #RecoveryAdvent2023 or log back on here to see them as they are added every day in December 2023.
