Calendar celebrates triumph over addiction

December 20, 2019

CLINTON TOWNSHIP, MICH., – Henry Ford Macomb Hospitals has partnered with CARE of Southeastern Michigan and Project Vox, a recovery advocacy group, to produce the 2020 Faces of Recovery calendar, which highlights the success of people in long term recovery from drug and alcohol addiction.

The annual calendar, which debuted in 2007, spotlights residents from around the region, each offering personal messages of hope and encouragement, drawing on their own experiences.

Approximately 5,500 copies of the 2019 calendar will be distributed throughout the metro Detroit area by CARE and various advocacy groups. Henry Ford Health System also makes the calendars available to Behavioral Health patients.

The goal of the calendar is to show individuals battling addiction that recovery is possible and to help remove the stigma that surrounds it.

To request a free copy of the calendar, phone CARE at (586) 541-2273.
