UNITE to Face Addiction
Over 600 organizations will be in attendance this year at the UNITE to Face Addiction Rally. The goal is to be the voice for the 22 million Americans that are suffering from addiction and stand up for the other 23 million Americans that are anonymously in recovery. This free event will have live musical performances from various artists who have also been affected by addiction in some way. Artists include Steven Tyler, Sheryl Crow, Joe Walsh, The Fray, Jason Isbell, and many more. UNITE to Face Addiction is hoping to help transform the conversations we are having about addiction, treatment, and recovery as our nation continues to face this major public health crisis.

It’s Time Our Voices Are Heard
Since there are over 23 million Americans in long-term recovery from drug addiction and alcoholism, it’s time we start talking. Recovery has become a secret here in America, and because of that secret, countless lives are being destroyed. We need to come together as a community, a nation, to show others that addicts and alcoholics are just like anyone else, and they, too, can recover and live normal, healthy lives. UNITE to Face Addiction Rally is just one more step to helping save our nation from this century’s new black plague – addiction.
Share your thoughts on social with us as we continue to spread the word that recovery is a reality! Please use #UNITEtoFaceAddiction #WatershedUNITE so we can hear your voice, too!
We’d love to hear your recovery story – please share it with us here!
We may not be able to fix addiction over night, but we can certainly make a difference by speaking up about addiction, treatment, and recovery. May our voices be heard so that others will never have to endure the pain and suffering we have, and those who are struggling can recover too.Tags: Recovery, the anonymous people, UNITE to face addiction
