We at RIR have worked hard over the last eight years to end the stigma of addiction. We need to let people know we can enter into recovery to live purposeful lives and be of maximum service to all. How we do this is very simple: “Addiction Education & Prevention Through Rock-N-Roll”.
TO ALL TREATMENT PROGRAMS & SOBER LIVING HOUSES — YOU’RE INVITED “Show Your Clients Recovery Can Be Fun”
Rockers In Recovery — RIR — holds a flagship all-day festival once a year since 2011. It’s called the “Love Of Recovery” Rockers in Recovery Music Festival. This experience combines multiple RIR All-Star Bands that all come together. We invite musicians who are either in recovery or support recovery to help spread the message of hope through their band or solo act music. The most important message that RIR conveys to the crowds of thousands is that having fun is completely doable and possible when you combine treatment and education and having fun.
EDUCATIONAL – It’s dedicated to providing our community with addiction prevention and education information to help families, community outreach leaders and anyone who suffers with drug addiction and alcoholism get help.
“Recovery is a Process” and Rockers In Recovery has also amassed some epic speakers on the topic who will be speaking and answering questions at the event. This is to help our south Florida community know that there is hope and we do recover from addiction. It’s free to all seeking help and information.

Nicholas Colangelo, Ph.D., of Clearbrook Treatment Centers

“I can say that Rockers In Recovery brings the private treatment sector, addiction education, addiction prevention, and the addiction advocacy non-profit sector together in a unique way, as no one else is doing anywhere in the United States. What makes RIR unique: The message is all around and through the universal language of music with some great rockers of our day. They combine it with educational speakers and advocacy groups. RIR brings it all together at their community addiction education meet and greets, and addiction awareness and prevention concerts/festivals.” — Tom Coderre, Senior White House Advisor to SAMHSA
