Annual walk fights stigma of addiction


Last updated 9/14/2017 at 4:47am

The 2017 Recovery Walk takes place in September as part of National Recovery Month. This year’s Recovery Walk will take place on September 16.

The Pittsburgh Recovery Walk aims to dispel the negative stigma associated with recovery from addiction, and instead celebrate the many roads to recovery and all those who have traveled them.

The Walk is free and open to the public. Everyone whose life has been touched by addiction or recovery is invited to join our city-wide celebration.

It begins in the parking lot at 11th and Waterfront (just north of Smallman St. in the Strip District) and proceeds down Penn Avenue to Market Square, where there will be a Recovery Expo with speakers, activities and entertainment.

This event is completely free! Register at
