HOUSTON, TX (August 19, 2014) - The Memorial Hermann Prevention and Recovery Center (PaRC) hosts its 9th Annual Ride for Recovery, a 100-mile motorcycle ride, to raise awareness of substance addiction and embrace recovery on Sunday, Sep. 21.

A first of its kind in the Houston area, the event, coordinated by the PaRC Alumni Association, offers an opportunity for people to get together, celebrate recovery, and let those suffering from addiction know “there is a solution.” Starting at 8 a.m., the motorcycle ride meanders through northwest Harris, Montgomery, and Waller counties and culminates with a barbeque cookout, music, and testimonies from people who have been set free from addiction. 

“We often hear the negative stories about alcoholism and drug abuse; but, there are a lot of positive stories out there as well,” said PaRC Director of Business Development Jane Barnes, a motorcyclist and one of the Ride for Recovery founders. “Houston has a huge community of people who have turned their lives around and we want to let the world know there is hope!” 

Motorcycle enthusiasts, families, friends, supporters, and community members are invited to join the festivities taking place at the PaRC, located near Memorial City at 3033 Gessner Rd.

In 1989, the federal Substance Abuse and Mental Health Services Administration designated September as “National Addiction and Drug Abuse Recovery Month” to foster education, celebrate recovery, and reduce the stigma attached to this devastating disease.

Incorporating the newest medical approaches along with proven treatment models and methodologies, PaRC is Houston's premier drug and alcohol rehabilitation center. Services include detox, residential treatment, intensive outpatient programs, an adolescent treatment program, family services, aftercare, 12-step meetings, and an alumni association.

For more information or to register, visit www.rideforrecovery.com or call the PaRC at (713) 329-7272.  All proceeds from the event are donated to the Men’s Center and The New Hope Women’s Center, two community organizations supporting individuals suffering with alcoholism and addiction.
