September 20, 2014
September is National Recovery Month. In keeping with that directive and forging ahead in our collective vision to celebrate the reality of recovery, New Jersey’s grassroots recovery support community is pleased to announce a free, family friendly statewide Recovery Rally event at the Rutgers Athletic Center (83 Rockafeller Road, Piscataway, New Jersey) on Saturday, September 20, 2014. The Anonymous People, an award winning film will be screened at 2:30 PM and the live Rally Program begins at 4:00 PM. Former New Jersey Governor James E. McGreevey, will be amongst the speakers. There will be a variety of music, entertainment and a Banner Contest with a theme of “RECOVERY: OUT OF THE SHADOWS INTO THE LIGHT.”
With the public, the prevention, treatment and recovering communities are uniting to raise awareness, create synergies and serve as the “tipping point” for effectively addressing the disease of addiction. There will be speakers, music, entertainment and educational exhibits. We anticipate this event will go far to offer hope to the suffering, demonstrate the reality of recovery from addiction and serve to eliminate the discrimination and stigma attached to this prevalent disease.
Sponsors include the New Hope Foundation, Orexo, Actavis and Alkermes. Limited exhibit space is still available. Show your support for a healthy New Jersey: join us and be a part of history!
