RENO, Nev. (News 4 & Fox 11) — A student organization on the Nevada campus is ramping up a program to give students and the community an opportunity to use the great outdoors as a key to maintain sobriety. Nevada Recovery and Prevention or “NRAP” is nestled in the middle of the UNR campus. It’s a place where students in drug or alcohol recovery or those just wanting a sober college experience can come for friendship, support, and mentoring.
NRAP is a student organization at the University of Nevada, Reno which provides peer support for students in recovery and choosing a sober lifestyle. On Saturday, September 30, at Idlewild Park, NRAP will host their third annual R5K Recovery Run/Walk and Celebration to promote community health and wellness, celebrate individuals in recovery, and reduce the stigma often associated with people with substance use related issues.
This September marks the 34th year of National Recovery Month. The goal of National Recovery Month is to raise awareness that hope and healing from mental health and substance use problems are real and possible. It highlights the availability of evidence-based treatment and recovery support services, celebrates the nation's strong recovery community, recognizes the commitment of service providers and communities that make recovery possible, and demonstrates the national recovery community’s dedication.
Nevada’s Recovery and Prevention invites you to join us in celebrating Recovery Month by registering to attend our Recovery 5k run/walk Celebration. NRAP’s Recovery Run/Walk & Celebration is held to promote community health and wellness, celebrate individuals in recovery, and reduce the stigma often associated with addiction. The R5K will provide an opportunity for participants to walk/run in honor of someone they know impacted by substance use, followed by a recovery celebration open to all community members.
