Recovery Month Candlelight Vigil

Free CBHC “R is for Recovery” t-shirt for the first 100 attendees (be there early for best choice of sizes). The event draws around 200 community members each year, and feature tables manned by community partners sharing information on addiction and recovery.

The night kicks off with the Serenity Prayer and a butterfly release. The release signifies how recovery helps so many people get their wings and fly off to new, brighter horizon. So, we release butterflies in hopes that we all release those shackles and troubles that hold us down – let the things holding us back from being our authentic selves fly off on the wings of the butterflies.

The Honorable Judge Paul Alessandroni and Mr. Jon Embury (Administrative Services Manager of the Court) will be honored and each receive the Charlotte Behavioral Health Care Community Partner Award for their advocacy in getting our Addictions Receiving Facility off the ground. Following that, we will hear from several recovery patients as they tell their inspiring journey to recovery.

The night ends with bagpipes being played during the candlelight vigil.

Kid-friendly event. Guests are encouraged to bring lawn chairs.


Time: 7 p.m. - 9 p.m.
Location: Laishley Park, 120 Laishley Court, PG
Cost: Free. Open to the public.
