"Every recovery movement needs a champion," ...

"Every recovery movement needs a champion," said Phil Valentine, "a champion who's really passionate."

Valentine is executive director of the Connecticut Community for Addiction Recovery and a pioneer in a movement gaining momentum across the country, nowhere more so than in North Carolina. The recovery movement is founded on a notion that you might reasonably expect would be the guiding principle in the care for people with mental health and substance-use disorders, but isn't.
It's the belief that people with behavioral health issues should be helped to find their own routes back to good health, happiness and productivity. That medication compliance and symptom control aren't ultimate treatment goals: Recovery and reintegration are.
Valentine was referring, in that instance, to Richie Tannerhill.

Phil "Right Click" Valentine, Executive Director of the Connecticut Community for Addiction Recovery (CCAR) hiked the 2,189 mile Appalachian Trail raising more than $20,000 to support recovery from alcohol and other addiction.

Phil "Right Click" Valentine on Mount Katahdin
Phil Valentine, 55 yeas old, in recovery from alcohol and cocaine addiction since 1987 and a CCAR employee for the last 17 years was known as "Right Click" on the Appalachian Trail because of his clicking right knee. Valentine started his trek exactly 5 years from the day he received a stage 4 cancer diagnosis. While recovering from an aggressive and successful chemotherapy and radiation treatment regimen, Valentine sensed a call to hike the Appalachian Trail, a feat that ultimately would take 189 days to achieve.
Two years prior to his start, the CCAR Board of Directors had the unusual yet inspired foresight to fully support the walk. Valentine has earned an international reputation as a leader in the new recovery advocacy movement. A plan was launched for Valentine to use this adventure to "put a face on recovery", one of the movement's central themes. He raised funds for the organization, generating more than $20,000. Valentine framed it this way, "I believe people in recovery from alcohol and other addiction go on and do extraordinary things.
Valentine endured snow, sleet, rain, lightning, wind and high summer heat. He saw his share of wildlife and sighted 15 different bears and 4 moose; there's a photo on Instagram of Valentine, a mother bear and 2 cubs with a caption of "The elusive 3-bear selfie!"
I heard Valentine speak at a recent event. A gifted public speaker, Valentine artfully recalled many adventures. From miraculous healing to treacherous traverses, he endured the physical toll on his body that included weight loss of 56 pounds, aching muscles, throbbing joints, rashes, blisters, sprains and scrapes. He highlighted the talk with marvelous photographs that emphasized the sheer beauty of the Appalachian Trail. Valentine had the support of his family. His wife Sandy provided trail magic along the way. His 18-year-old daughter Samantha hiked 280 miles in Virginia with him and earned the trail name "Tough Love". Matthew "Riptide" Valentine (age 13) did more than 100 miles with him in Vermont. Valentine also talked about the emotional and mental stress of living on the trail for 6 months.
All I felt was relief; I finally got to go home", Valentine said from the comfort of his home.
Valentine is currently working on a book about his adventure. In the meantime he speaks about the journey whenever he can.
