September is National Recovery Month, and each year the community comes together to celebrate by sharing resources and connecting with others. This year, Recovery Month looks different than it has in the past, but conversations and celebrations will still take place.
In Lincoln County, September usually means the Hands Across the Bridge event is just around the corner. With the impacts and health risks of COVID-19, community partners will not host the traditional gathering this year and instead are opting for smaller, safer activities.
“While we are disappointed we cannot safely host the Hands Across the Bridge event this year, we are using this opportunity to offer more activities throughout the county and through virtual venues. We hope to keep the conversation going throughout the month while prioritizing health and safety,” Substance Abuse and Problem Gambling Prevention Coordinator Jess Palma said.
A full list of events throughout the month can be found on the event calendar www.co.lincoln.or.us/hhs/page/recovery-month-2020.
