The University of Texas Addiction Research Institute is handling coordination of events and distribution of the HHS funds to support local rallies this year. An application process was put into place and 10 community organizations were selected to become official BTRR Affiliate Organizations and host a rally.
For more than 30 years, during the month of September, communities, and local organizations from across the country host celebrations in honor of the National Recovery Month observation. These activities take many forms that bring public attention to recovery and challenge negative attitudes, stigma, and discrimination.
For more than a decade, a vital part of this tradition has included the Big Texas Rally for Recovery – a celebration for recovery of individuals, families, and entire communities across Texas.
We are planning great music, comedy, storytelling, dance, food. Dignitaries from the national recovery movement, public officials, and persons in recovery, families, community supporters, speakers, and friends of recovery will all join the celebration to inspire and replenish our passion for recovery. More details still to come!
