A community of recovery

Participants stroll the walking path at Cartier Park, seeing signs honoring those who have been affected by addiction and lost their lives or are in recovery, during the Walk for Recovery Awareness Saturday.

Families and friends honored their loved ones who have been affected by substance abuse and addiction during the Walk for Recovery Awareness event Saturday afternoon at Cartier Park in Ludington.

Connexion Point, an addiction treatment and recovery organization, hosted the walk for its second year to raise awareness about addiction, build a community of recovery and observe September as National Recovery Month.

The family-friendly event was a time to remember those who have lost their lives to drug and alcohol abuse, and to celebrate the efforts of people who are in treatment and recovery.
