Rally4Recovery taking place Saturday in Providence


PROVIDENCE, R.I. (AP) — A rally is being held to raise awareness about mental health and substance use disorders and celebrate the people who recover.

The 14th annual Rhode Island Rally4Recovery will take place at 2 p.m. Saturday at the Roger Williams National Memorial on North Main Street in Providence.

The event is being held as part of National Recovery Month.

Politicians, community leaders, people in recovery and others are expected to take part.

U.S. Sen. Sheldon Whitehouse, a Rhode Island Democrat, will receive an award for a bill he authored to help states prevent drug abuse, treat addiction and reduce overdose deaths. The bill recently became law.

The event includes free Hepatitis C and HIV testing and a presentation on how to prevent overdoses with the overdose antidote naloxone.
