Recovery Relay raises awareness of drug and alcohol rehabilitation

Former alcohol and drug addicts have joined a cycle rally across Essex to raise awareness of rehabilitation services in the county.  

Over 50 people joined the campaign as part of Recovery Month 2011.  Cyclers included ex-addicts, friends and relatives and staff from rehabilitation services.  The event was organised by Essex Young Peoples Drug and Alcohol Service.  

The rally hopes to raise awareness but also to celebrate the service users who have recovered from their addictions.
