Many Southwest Georgians came out to celebrate the 4th Annual Recovery Month Celebration in Downtown Albany on Saturday.
"Addiction is a treatable disease and recovery is possible," said Recovery Celebration Coordinator Erica Graham.
Hundreds came out to The Ray Charles Pavilion to celebrate National Alcohol & Drug Addiction Recovery Month.
"This is clear proof that prevention works, number one, treatment is effective and people do recover," said Graham.
"Recovery has made a big difference in my life. This is wonderful. This is the best time of my life," said recovering addict Lee Jordan.
Lee Jordan is a recovering crack cocaine and alcohol addict who says recovery treatment and intervention programs, like the ones at Saturday's celebration, saved his life.
He's been clean going on five years in March. He remembers the day he wanted to turn his life around.
"March 15th of 2008, I got down on my knees and prayed. I asked God to take the taste of drugs and alcohol out of my mouth," said Jordan.
Now event organizers want to get the word out the Southwest Georgia communities that help is available.
"Southwest Georgia is suffering, so it's a big deal because the community needs to know that there is help," said Graham.
As for Jordan, he has Advice for those seeking help.
"Stay in recovery, pray and ask God to help you," said Jordan.
