Recovery Happens in Humboldt reunites friends, families, and faith

Eureka, Ca., (KIEM) Recovery Happens in Humboldt reunited friends, families, and faith Saturday afternoon at Sequoia Park.

In wake of September being National Recovery Month, the Recovery Happens Committee, planned a picnic and a walk.

The group shared that this event is to provide services to those in need, to show solidarity for those recovering, and to have a good time.

Almost 400 people showed up to participate in Saturday’s festivities.

It’s the support of the community that encourages recovering addicts to do better said the organization.

“Here locally people recover in anonymity and addiction is on full display,” said Wesley Harrison of Crossroads Eureka. “So this was our chance to change the narrative and show our community that we do recover here locally in Humboldt County.”

Recovery Happens in Humboldt said all leftover food is going towards feeding the homeless.
