History of Rally in the Valley
2019 – Strength in Recovery
We are honored by the participation and support of Rally in the Valley. You helped us inspire people across the region who are directly and indirectly affected by addiction.
On the day of the event over 4,000 people demonstrated and witnessed that recovery from substance use disorder is possible, attractive, and strengthens our community as a whole. People in recovery have fun and embrace life.
Radio broadcasts, newspaper articles, and television news featured Rally in the Valley and shed a positive light on the power of recovering people and helped remove the stigma associated with addiction.
With support from the Lehigh Valley County Drug and Alcohol Administration we were able to provide transportation to the event from 11 surrounding counties. Lehigh Valley Health Network provided Narcan and CPR training and held many conversations in order to decrease the stigma surrounding addiction. Rally in the Valley was able to provide numerous opportunities for volunteers. Many came as clients of treatment centers, residents at recovery homes, and drug court participants fulfilling community service commitments. Leaders from family support programs helped parents identify early indicators of substance use and encouraged them to seek resources and support as needed. Treatment providers, social service agencies, county authorities, peer support and faith groups came together in a collaborative effort to educate and inspire people on the many pathways that lead to a fulfilling recovery lifestyle.
