Commemorating 50 Years.
One Day at a Time.
The Kamloops Society for Alcohol and Drug Services (KSADS) marked a significant milestone—their 50th anniversary providing services in Kamloops and area to help youth and adults journey through alcohol and drug addiction into recovery and wellness. At the event, KSADS announced its new name: Day One Society.
Day One Society premiered a film at the event and has launched a campaign called: 50 Years. One Day at a Time. to ensure the communities the Society serves can easily find and access the detoxification, counselling, treatment, and recovery services for them or their loved ones as people get used to the new name.
“As a Society, it is our ultimate hope that by what we do through our communications, connections, and services, we will resonate with those in a journey of addiction to connect with us to turn the thought of ‘one day I’ll get help’ into day one of their journey to recovery and wellness,” noted said Marilyn McLean, Chair of the Day One Society Board of Directors. “For those who have not personally experienced addiction, we encourage them to watch our film to get a better sense of what addiction is like to provide understanding to help eliminate stigma so that everyone will know it’s safe and normal to need and seek help.”
