River Community Celebration of Red Ribbon Week

Here at River Community, we are honoring the tradition of Red Ribbon Week! Residents created outlines of themselves demonstrating the rewards of sobriety vs the struggles of living in the disease. We also played Red Ribbon BINGO and decorated our facility with red ribbons while sporting our “Change begins with awareness” bracelets. River Community is thriving in sobriety.

Red Ribbon Week is the largest drug prevention campaign in the nation. Launched in 1988 with President and Mrs. Reagan serving as honorary chairpersons for the event. Traditionally, the campaign is celebrated during the last two weeks of October with October 23rd-31st being the official Red Ribbon Week. It is an ideal way for people & communities to unite and take a visible stand against drugs. Show your personal commitment to a drug-free lifestyle by participating in a Red Ribbon Week Celebration in your community.

This year the theme is “Recovery Looks Like Me”. The theme was created by Ohio 7th grader Marin Wurst. It serves as a reminder that everyday Americans across the country make significant daily contributions to their communities by being the best they can be because they live Drug-Free.
