After three years of being postponed Washington Park Lake House hosted “Recovery in the Park”.

Organizers provided food, a raffle, community resources, a photo booth, an ice cream truck, and face painting.

There was a Recovery Advocacy Awards given at the event.

Award winners included Rob Kent of the Office of National Drug Control Policy, and State Senator Peter Harckham – the Chairman of the committee on Alcoholism and Substance abuse.

Executive Director of Second Chance Opportunities, Kellie Roe says that today’s event should teach people that recovery is possible.

“If you’re looking for treatment we can get you treatment. If you need supportive housing we can get you supportive housing. No matter where you’re at, recovery is possible,” Roe said.

“Recovery in the Park” is an annual event and welcome to the public.
