About Forth Valley Recovery Community's National Recovery Olympics

It will have a sports day theme with races such as Sprints, 3 legged race, egg and spoon, wheel barrow, sack race, relay race and tug of war.

We are inviting recovery communities, organisations and partners from across Scotland that have an interest in recovery from addiction to enter teams and come together to make connections with others in recovery from substance use. We want this to be a free event so that community members can bring their family and friends along and fully enjoy being part of the day without having to worry about the financial cost.

We plan to have media coverage to promote the event and make recovery visible and remove the stigma of people in recovery. We will also invite partners such as NHS, Police Scotland, Scottish Ambulance service to name but a few. We want to bring people in recovery into the forefront of people’s minds removing the feeling or isolation and shame associated with substance misuse and celebrate recovery in Forth Valley but also Scotland as a whole.

This will be a family event so everyone can come along and support their partners, husbands, wife's, sons, daughters, mums, dads, grandparents and/or friends. Addiction doesn't just affected the individual it affects families and communities as well. We want to give people hope that their is life after addiction for them and their loved ones. It will be a fun day of races, laughter, food, connectivity and community spirit.
