A rally is set later this week in Lansing to help spark awareness for addiction and recovery.

The 4th Annual United to Face Addiction Michigan, or U-FAM, rally will be held on the grounds of the state capitol this Friday from 10 am until 4pm. U-FAM is a nonprofit organization that works to unify the voices of citizens impacted by addiction and the organizations working to change the way it is perceived and treated in the state. Through unity they hope to eliminate stigma, support prevention of substance abuse, create greater paths to treatment, and promote recovery.

All are welcome to attend the event which will include legislators, national and local speakers, entertainers and multiple organizations providing resources from throughout the state. A health and wellness tent will provide resource tables, vendors, naloxone training and classes for participants to partake in during the event.
