9TH ANNUAL RUN FOR RECOVERY
We’re excited to host our 9th Annual Run for Recovery! Join us on Sunday, September 25th, 2022, at the Riverfront Park in Salem for our 5K, 10K, or 1 mile walk event!
These past few years have been full of isolation and uncertainty, so we know that people may need mental health support and substance use treatment more than ever. At the very least, we all want connection. Our Run for Recovery will do all of that: raise awareness about recovery from mental illness and addiction, reduce the stigma associated with these struggles, and give people an opportunity to gather again and reconnect. Join us on September 25th!
Thank you to CCTV Salem for the production of this video!

Who We Are
At Bridgeway, we provide integrated health care services for mental health, chemical dependency, problem gambling, and primary medical care. With all our services, we strive to be trauma-informed, knowing that many chemical dependency problems are an attempt to cope with something deeper. By addressing these problems and connecting people to resources that can help them further succeed after treatment, we hope to guide them to the path of enduring health and happiness.

Why We Run
When someone breaks their arm, they go to the doctor. If someone needs their wisdom teeth pulled, they go to the dentist. This is considered normal, and no one blames them for needing help. Why isn’t this the case for depression, chemical dependency, or problem gambling? So often, people don’t seek help for these problems because they are afraid of the social repercussions such as stigma, shame, and blame.
The goal of Run for Recovery is to destigmatize getting help for these problems by connecting those in recovery with others, bring awareness to recovery, and show that it is possible. We see it every day.
