As we near the middle of National Recovery Month, hundreds showed up to Scranton for the city’s Recovery Walk.
It was a little over half of a mile long in honor of National Recovery Month’s 30th anniversary.
Lackawanna County District Attorney Mark Powell was also there, saying the stigma surrounding people who need help has to stop.
“It unites all of us who participate, sometimes on adverse sides of the law,” Powell said. “I’m certainly one who prosecutes those who use and sell drugs, but the solution starts with recovery.”
The walk started on Eighth Avenue and ended at The Recovery Bank on Wyoming Avenue.
