CHEYENNE, Wyo. (Wyoming News Now) - Recover Wyoming is holding a rally to bring attention to long-term recovery in the community.

September 30th is International Recovery Day.

“There’s people in this community that are in recovery, and long-term recovery is possible for anyone,” said Lana Mahoney, Executive Director of Recover Wyoming.

The rally will kick-off with the creation of recovery signs at 11 a.m., followed by a walk around the State Capitol.

Recover Wyoming aims to bring awareness to recovery to the Laramie County community, and also advocate for those who are suffering addiction. Mahoney said the rally is also in celebration of those already in recovery.

“I think there is a lot of stigma associated with substance use and part of the reason why we do this event is to celebrate that recovery is a reality and there is many people already in recovery in our community, but it also helps to advocate for those who are still struggling. It helps to advocate and educate the public about needed resources, and information and education,” said Mahoney.

Those who want to participate in the rally can visit the website, or meet on the steps of the Capitol Building next Thursday.
