Need Help With Event Planning?
Community and media events are the cornerstone of National Alcohol and Drug Addiction Recovery Month (Recovery Month); holding an event can be an exciting and important way to make a difference in your community. The impact your organization can have by spreading a lasting message of recovery throughout your community can be beyond measure.

Recovery Month events, no matter how large or small, can go a long way in promoting the benefits of recovery. Visit the View Events tab above for examples of events of all sizes that resulted in the dissemination of positive and personal messages of recovery in communities across the country.

At the Faces and Voices of Recovery website you will find information about their video, "The Power of Our Stories: Speaking Out for Addiction Recovery"

This video is designed to empower people in recovery, their family members, friends, and allies to speak out for addiction recovery. Through example, the video emphasizes the importance of standing up and speaking out. It demonstrates how people are using their stories to change attitudes and policies that stigmatize and discriminate against people seeking or in recovery from addiction to alcohol or drugs.

It's available for web viewing or purchase. The Web version of the streaming video can be viewed online at: http://www.recoverymonth.gov/2008/multimedia/videos.aspx#faces
