F3 and Healing Transitions “Thank a Village”

Healing Transitions has invited the PAX of F3 Raleigh to take part in a large group photo they are taking on the big field in Dix Park, on Tuesday, September 25th at 4:30pm.

The photo is a response to the national recovery month challenge issued by Faces and Voices of Recovery.  The challenge is “Thank a Village”, where people in recovery are to take a picture with someone from their village who has helped them.  Healing Transitions is taking a picture that will say “We are Your Village” and they are trying to get as many groups to be a part of that pic as possible – and want F3 in our area to be a part of it. Come on out, and be a part of it!


To clarify: This is not a Healing Transitions event or photo. This is an idea the came out of community collaboration and discussion. It is an idea for a unified show of support from everyone in the community who plays a role in caring for those in active addiction, providing for those as they initiate recovery, and supporting those in building a life in recovery.

As we come to the close of September and National Recovery Month, the community is coming together to show their support for those in recovery and those in need of recovery from substance use disorders. For National Recovery Month Faces and Voices of Recovery, the nation’s leading recovery advocacy organization, issued the “Thank a Village Challenge.” In response we are organizing a “We Are Your Village” photo. In the midst of this Nation’s greatest public health crisis, this is the perfect opportunity for us to come together and in a unified voice say to those in recovery and those in need of recovery “We are your village and we are here for you.”
