The warm and breezy sunshine drew a crowd to Pulteney Square to support, encourage and celebrate those who know recovery is possible because they’ve done it.

The annual Speakerfest in Bath, a part of  National Recovery Month, was sponsored by Addiction Awareness of Steuben County and the Steuben Prevention Coalition Opioid Committee (SPCOC) and featured the experience, strength and hope of those who have successfully battled addiction — one day at a time.

Those speakers and the agencies present at the festival are examples of the strong, almost unparalleled services available in Steuben County, SPCOC CoChair and AIM Peer Counselor Brandon Beuter told the crowd.
