Recovery Walks

12th Annual Recovery Walk 5K Run/1 Mile Walk 2018

Why Walk for Recovery?

For more than 35 years, our treatment professionals have touched the lives of thousands affected by the disease of addiction. We provide treatment with dignity and respect to the patient and their family that literally changes lives. Some of our patients have insurance coverage and family support to help them pay for these intensive services. Others are ready to make a change but do not have the financial resources to make it happen. Our Ameel Rashid scholarship fund helps make their dreams of a new life possible.

You can make all the difference...

We need your help to remove barriers to recovery and open new doors for those still struggling with addiction.

Help us by supporting the Illinois Institute for Addiction Recovery and the Ameel Rashid Scholarship for Addiction Recovery by participating in the 2018 Recovery Walk 5K run/1-mile walk.
