The FAVOR (Faces and Voices of Recovery) UK Drugs and Alcohol Recovery Walk is being hosted by Middlesbrough this year. The walk is on the 7th September and I am walking from Heywood in Rochdale and hope to arrive in Middlesbrough on the 6th September in time to complete the Recovery Walk on Saturday the 7th September. I am doing this alone. The reason why I have chosen to walk alone is to remind myself of the challenges those who experience the impact of substance misuse may face. Having worked in this field for 12 years I have witnessed the fortitude of individuals, the physical and psychological pain endured when a better life is aimed for. It is achievable, it is worth the effort, it does take time, there may be errors and slip ups along the way, but the destination is static and as long as i keep going I will get there. The Big Life Group have shown me that no matter the need, we can all have a positive impact if we choose to. I have chosen to support the Big Issue North Trust as they advocate and support possibility by providing opportunity.
