Relay for Recovery set for September 24

News from the Confederated Salish and Kootenai Tribal Health

ST. IGNATIUS — Confederated Salish and Kootenai Tribal Health will host a community Relay for Recovery on Saturday, Sept. 24.

The relay will begin in two places, with a group starting one mile north, and another group starting one mile south of the People’s Center at 11 a.m. The two groups will converge at the People’s Center for an “Art in the Park” event, consisting of various presentations, music, interactive games and art activities regarding health, wellness and recovery.

Participants are invited to travel the Relay for Recovery on foot, by horse, by car, by motorcycle or bicycle.

What is recovery? Per the Substance Abuse and Mental Health Services Administration, recovery is described as a process of change through which individuals improve their health and wellness, live a self-directed life and strive to achieve their full potential.

Recovery is a process, not an end goal.

The focus is on health and wellness, not sickness and disease.

The purpose is to live a productive meaningful life as defined and designed by each individual.

The recovery journey is unique and personal—there are many roads to recovery.

Mere survival of mental illness and substance abuse is not all there is. Thriving despite limitations of mental illness and substance abuse is possible.

Tribal Health’s Relay for Recovery is an event for all those in recovery or on the path to recovery from mental illness and or substance abuse, and including families, friends and allies who support those in recovery.

North Start: Parking lot of Collision Craft of Polson, 53466 US Highway 93, Polson.

South Start: Parking lot Pablo Family Foods (Highway 93 and Clairmont Road)

People’s Center: 56633 US Highway 93, Pablo

Tribal Health of the Confederated Salish and Kootenai is dedicated to a promise that every Tribal Health recipient receives high-quality health care grounded in tribal values— supporting each recipient’s journey
