National Recovery Month, now in its 25th year, brings together and celebrates individuals who have reclaimed their lives and are successfully in long-term recovery from alcohol and drug addiction. Twelve years ago, two women decided to celebrate their recovery and declare they were no longer under the bridge in their addiction. They stood on the I-5 Bridge at daybreak with 200 people. Today, Hands Across the Bridge draws thousands of people who want to share their own celebrations.
