Kitty Dukakis has her own story to tell at a Michigan walk and rally celebrating alcohol and drug addiction recovery.
The events are scheduled to take place Tuesday in downtown Lansing as a reminder to Michigan legislators finishing up the state budget that treatment and prevention services are a wise investment.
The wife of former Massachusetts Gov. Michael Dukakis was treated for alcoholism after her husband's unsuccessful presidential campaign in 1988. She later suffered a relapse and was hospitalized after drinking rubbing alcohol.
She says in a statement that most people who are recovering from their addictions have returned to "good health, happy families and successful employment."
The annual event is now in its 10th year.
