SoberMap – Immediately Access 12 Step Meetings

SoberMap App

SoberMap App, Immediately Access 12 Step meetings in your vicinity, talking SoberMap with CEO and Founder John P. 

After many years in Recovery, my friends and I would always find it a challenge to make meetings whether we were leaving visiting a relative, on vacation, leaving a customer office, at a conference and especially when we were on travel. We would go back to the hotel search for a local meeting and try to figure out what meeting we could go to. On many occasions, the meeting wasn’t at the location anymore or the I couldn’t make the time set for the meeting at the location.. 9 out of 10 times we just didn’t make a meeting. One day I was using Yelp on travel and the idea of having a SoberMap App for Recovery hit me. With smartphone so advanced, the idea of opening an App that would immediately give me meetings to choose from whether we were leaving a business meeting, a relative’s house, a sporting event etc… it would be great and there was no app to do it.

Recovering Addicts Gather At Festival To Put A Face On Recovery

21730793_1531327356911133_8678988630208618981_n

By Marcella Kester – For Times Leader – WILKES-BARRE — Kirby Park was full of sobriety Saturday, as hundreds of recovering addicts flocked to the park for the Love of Recovery Festival.

The event featured musicians from Florida-based radio and production group Rockers In Recovery, as well as various speakers, vendors and more.

As Dr. Nicholas Colangelo walked around the park, he was greeted by dozens of attendees, each happily updating him with where they are at in their rehabilitation from drugs and alcohol. The Clearbrook Treatment Centers CEO said he was happy to play a part in staging the event for the first time.

“There’s a lot of people dying (from addiction),” Colangelo noted, “but there are also a lot of people getting better, too.”

Rockers In Recovery, founded by John Hollis in 2008, travels the country to participate in recovery-themed festivals through free concerts, podcasts, education and more. Colangelo said he first met Hollis about a decade ago, when he traveled to Florida to attend one of his events. Although Rockers In Recovery is for-profit, it works closely with addiction treatment centers near events they participate in, urging residents and businesses to support their hometown groups to help end addiction.

Hollis wanted to remind the public that people in recovery have a face and come from all walks of life — from doctors and lawyers to teachers and musicians. Read More

Tim Ryan – Dope Man

Guest Tim Ryan a.k.a. Dope Man on A&E

Tim Ryan Talking From Dope To Hope; Tim a.k.a. Dope Man on A&E is an in-depth look at addiction. Drawing on personal experience, Tim Ryan was inspired to launch A Man in Recovery, whose mission is to save the lives of opiate addicts first, then provide new alternatives to keep addicts from relapsing. Half of all heroin addicts die, primarily from an overdose.  AMIR serves addicts and those whose lives they touch in new and effective ways.

A&E Dope Man –  Tim Ryan, an ex-con and former addict, who before embracing recovery, lost his son to heroin and nearly died from it himself. Now, in an era when addicts are dying faster and younger by the day, he’s made it his life’s mission to save others from the deadly drug. Tim’s unforgiving, in-your-face approach, as well as his commitment to placing people into meaningful long-term treatment, has singled him out nationally among politicians, law enforcement officials and educators as one of the most effective experts in his field.

The AMIR Foundation aims to introduce a brand new post-rehab sober living model. Living and working together in a demanding yet supportive community, Ryan envisions addicts who would strive to build new lives – free from the horrors of addiction to heroin and other opiates. Ultimately, AMIRF hopes to expand this model to opiate addicts nationwide.

Love of Recovery Music Festival with singer /songwriter / guitarist Mike Mizwinski. Mike gives his name MiZ to the band and his solo work and it is his heart and soul– poured into the words and his guitar– that drives it all forward. We use the term singer/songwriter loosely here, as a MiZ show can feature fast, intricate instrumental guitar compositions, foot stomping bluegrass, soulful ballads, creative covers, and a melting pot of different styles- textures- flavors- and feels that make up the catalouge (over four albums worth) of self penned songs.

Mike has maintained a freshness, a vibe, something, that keeps fans coming back for more. MiZ has opened for America, The Wallflowers, Derek Trucks Band, Kenny Wayne Shepherd, Blues Traveler, Shawn Colvin, Lyle Lovett, Leon Russell, Railroad Earth and many more. Since 2010 Mike has played in cities all over the world, spanning from Berlin Germany -Northern Canada – Los Angeles – Austin, Texas – New York City and everywhere in between. He has played onstage with artists such as America, Umphrey’s McGee, Donna Jean Godchaux, members of  THE BAND, Ratdog, moe., Particle, String Cheese Incident, New Riders of the Purple Sage, Jackie Greene, Marc Ford + more. Mike is now endorsing Framus/Warwick guitars and won the Tri-State Indie “Acoustic Artist of the Year” award two years in a row- 2011 & 2012.

Jack’s new record “Beautiful Man From Mars” and his work on demo sessions for David Bowie‘s final album, Blackstar.  Jack Spann music has been compared to authentic pre-fame versions of Elton John or Billy Joel, James Taylor, Ray Charles, Ben Folds or even a latter day Joe Jackson.

Rolling piano and melodic delivery puts Spann on the piano bench firmly between Billy Joel and Elton John. The dramatic organ fills are reminiscent of the interchange one hears between Procol Harum’s Gary Brooker and Matthew Fischer. Partial Qoute by Ken Raisenen – From The Vaults – Ontonagon Herald on Spann’s last release Time, Time, Time, Time, Time.

This is his creed, and the essence to which he approaches the instrument every time he sits behind the drums.

2017 Unite To Fight Addiction - Sobriety Unplugged

Listen To Interview Click Arrow


2017 Unite To Fight Addiction Sponsor – Sobriety Unplugged Created By Paul Stephen Wilson to shed a light on addiction recovery based songwriters.  Using this experience as a way to elicit and process emotions and have a whole lot of fun while doing it.

New live, new job, new guitar. I started writing and relearning with a fever pitch passion, but I couldn’t play out sober… unbelievable stage fright. With help of other musicians and my sponsor I worked through it.

I got involved with Rockers In Recovery® and it gave me a way to give back and show other addicts and alcoholics you can have fun in Recovery. I put together a family band with my son and grandson, three generations playing music how cool is that.

With the help of Rockers In Recovery I started Sobriety Unplugged to do smaller Unplugged venues . The music enhances my recovery and my recovery enhances my music.  For more information please contact Sobriety Unplugged.

“Recovery is a Process” and Rockers In Recovery has amassed some epic speakers on the topic. This is to help our south Florida community know that there is help, hope, and recovery is possible from addiction.

Lyle Fried (The Shores) – 2017 Unite To Fight Addiction

Lyle Fried (The Shores) – 2017 Unite To Fight Addiction

RIR Radio – Lyle Fried Recorded Live; Unite To Fight Addiction

Guest speaker Lyle Fried CEO & Founder at The Shores Treatment & Recovery recorded live at the Rockers In Recovery 2017 Unite To Fight Addiction.

Lyle is a Board-Certified Addictions Professional, an Internationally Certified Alcohol & Drug Counselor, an Approved Training Provider for the Florida Certification Board, and a Certified Health Coach. Because of his experience and industry knowledge he continues to be a regular and featured speaker at various industry events.

Lyle started his journey working in treatment by entering a program for his own addiction in the 90s. His first experience in treatment was as a cash-pay client in a high-end residential facility that “graduated” him as soon as his money ran out. About 3 months after being sent to a ¾-way home that was overrun with drugs, he relapsed and felt hopeless. Fortunately, a family friend found him a bed at a center for homeless men with addictions. After graduating a year-long program, Lyle felt compelled to give back and began doing service work. Quickly this turned into a passion to help others that led to study the treatment industry top to bottom. He learned state statutes and regulations, and studied counseling practices from several angles. This eventually led him back to school for a degree in psychology. It became Lyle’s passion to learn how to provide the best care possible and be able to treat people for the duration they needed as an individual, not the duration their bank account mandated.

Ken Seeley (A&E Intervention) – 2017 Unite To Fight Addiction

Ken Seeley , CIP,BRI ll ,RAS,CATA – A&E Intervention

RIR Radio – Ken Seeley Recorded Live; Unite To Fight Addiction

2017 Rockers In Recovery – Unite To Fight Addiction, with guest Ken Seeley, interventionist and author. He is best known for his appearances on the A&E reality show, Intervention. Certified as a CIP, CCMI-M, RAS, CATC , Seeley himself has been sober since July 14, 1989. Since then, he has worked full-time in the business of recovery.

Seeley is the author of Face It and Fix It, published by HarperOne in 2009. The book is about overcoming the denial that leads to common addictions while bringing guidance to those struggling with addiction. Face It and Fix It has been said to “leave you with a greater sense of self-awareness and the skills you need to both improve your relationships and to live the life you deserve”.

Seeley has remained involved, professionally and personally, in recovery since 1989. In an early episode of Intervention he revealed he was once addicted to crystal meth. He is a Certified Intervention Professional, Master’s Level Case Manager/Interventionist, Registered Addiction Specialist, and Certified Addiction Treatment Counselor. and works to save lives every day as the founder of Intervention-911, a service specializing not just in interventions but also in finding appropriate treatment centers for each kind of addict. Today, Seeley lives with his partner, Eric McLaughlin in Palm Springs,”Alcohol & Drug Intervention Services”. Intervention 911. Retrieved 2013-02-16.

Today, Ken still derives the greatest personal satisfaction from the hundreds of interventions he has conducted, organized, or facilitated through Intervention 911. In 2007, Ken held one of the first training for interventionists in London and now conducts up to five intervention training’s a year. After years in the recovery industry, Ken realized that recovery is a process and takes time. Addicts do not stay sober with just an intervention and treatment; it is all about the continuum of care and subsequent follow-up, just like any other illness. In 2008, Intervention911 initiated the RAP program which supports the recovery process for addicts and their families for one to five years.

In 2011, Seeley opened Ken Seeley Communities, a sober living community in Palm Springs, CA, and in 2015 opened an Intensive Out-Patient Program to help create the seamless continuum of care to support the person suffering with an addiction. By offering services pre and post treatment, Seeley has sought to provide all the supportive services around treatment. As you can see, Seeley’s personal experience of addiction and recovery fuels his desire to impact others in similar situations. Ken grasps the full understanding of the addict’s behavior. His innate compassion for fellow addicts continually bolsters his ability to connect and communicate with addicts and their families. Seeley has applied his personal struggle with addiction to the intervention equation. This is an asset that has become a valuable catalyst in Intervention 911’s and Ken Seeley Community’s impressive results.

Seeley’s remarkable success rate has turned him into one of the most sought-after interventionists in the country. Doctors and health care professionals look to people like Ken to solve their patient’s addiction and mental health issues. His knowledge and unique perspective have also made him the #1 go-to expert on the subject of addiction and intervention with the media, where he’s a regular contributor for CNN, MSNBC, NBC, CBS, FOX, ABC, and many others.

Drummer Sam Galindo – Music and Recovery

Drummer Sam Galindo - Music & Recovery;

Listen To Interview Click Arrow

Drummer Sam Galindo – Music and Recovery; My recovery started with Broward County Sheriff’s finally bringing me in for my last Main Jail detox May 13, 2015. Consequentially that’s also my clean date now. I had a fairly short stay of about 90 days, but it was not my first. After and offer of 5 years of prison, I reached out to a gentleman by the name of Mike Lieberworth who came in and spoke on my behalf. Long story short, I made it into halfway and into the program, after a little resistance from the disease of course. I have 20 months clean now and in that 20 months I found that no matter what, my idle hands are still the Devil’s playground.

I had to turn back to my first love which is music. What better way to tend to idle hands than putting some drumsticks back in em’!! I play every chance I can and I consider it my form of “Chaotic Meditation”. Anyone who has ever tried to convince me it’s anything other than meditation is quickly made a believer when I explain to them the feeling that playing music gives me. If you love music and you are in recovery, my best advice would be to never let it go. It’s goes hand and hand with my recovery and no one can take that connection away from me as long as I hold it in my heart as I always have.

Musician George Massengill – Treatment and Recovery

George Massengill of JourneyPure - Treatment & Recovery

Treatment & Recovery with Musician Singer/Songwriter, George Massengill of JourneyPure  I changed a lot of things in my life in 1988 starting with getting clean and went back to collage to receive a degree in Social Work and, I began to work as an alcohol and drug counselor and became licensed as a counselor. I still work in that field today.

George Massengill of JourneyPure - Treatment & RecoveryJourneyPure started with the goal to help others conquer their addictions and acquire the necessary skills to live a restored and sober life. Our inventive approach is one that is comprehensive and incorporates aspects of nutrition, fitness, and mental wellness into each program. To ensure personal recovery, each patient receives unique treatment that is personally developed to fit their specific co-occurring disorders.

My belief is that music is the truth!! It comes from a place in the soul, the enjoyment of it and the creation of it is pure …. No additives or preservatives… you either feel it or you don’t, and feeling it is all that counts!! I think Herb Crouch told me that or more importantly showed me that in his life, I hope I never forget that.

Sobriety Unplugged – The Impact

Main RIR Recovery Radio Partner Sponsorship

Sobriety Unplugged Created By Paul Stephen Wilson

Sobriety Unplugged – Paul Stephen Wilson

Sobriety Unplugged Created By Paul Stephen Wilson to shed a light on addiction recovery based songwriters.  Using this experience as a way to elicit and process emotions and have a whole lot of fun while doing it.

The desire to avoid experiencing and regulating intense emotions are major factors in substance abuse disorders (SUD) and relapse following treatment (Baker, Gleadhill, & Dingle, 2007). An important aspect of treatment is clients learning how to feel and tolerate their internal emotions without the use of substances. Music is an ideal way in which to evoke intense emotional states in people with SUD. This is a form of treatment that can help “individuals process strong emotional states in the absence of substance use”. (Baker, Gleadhill, & Dingle, 2007).

Substance use and music share an important commonality. They can alter consciousness (Aldridge & Fachner, 2010), provide direct and immediate instant gratification (Baker, Gleadhill, & Dingle, 2007) and produce feelings of “bliss and serenity” (Solanki, Zafar, & Rastogi, 2013).

The experience of music therapy can elicit both conscious and unconscious emotions (Inselmann, 2007) (Aldridge & Fachner, 2010) (Mössler, Assmus, Heldal, Fuchs, & Gold, 2012). Through the verbal processing of the musical experience, clients can now identify and put into words emotions they were previously unaware of or unable to express. Music can break through walls that restrict their capacity for recovery (Aldridge & Fachner, 2010) (Baker, Gleadhill, & Dingle, 2007) (Bonde & Wilgram, 2001) (McCaffrey, Edwards, & Fannon, 2011) (Sergio Castillo-Pérez, 2010) (Solanki, Zafar, & Rastogi, 2013) (de l’Etoile, 2002).

Sobriety UnpluggedMusic therapy has been proven to produce positive outcomes for clients ambivalent or resistant to treatment or have difficulty expressing feelings. Music has the ability to influence thinking and feeling which are prerequisites for behavioral change (de l’Etoile, 2002) (Mössler, Assmus, Heldal, Fuchs, & Gold, 2012). Research shows that the experience of listening to the music, lyrics, and processing what they experienced reduces feelings of shame, depression, anxiety, isolation and guilt. Clients can gain mutual identification, acquisition of a new coping skill, and enhanced optimism and hope from this experience. (Aldridge & Fachner, 2010) (Baker, Gleadhill, & Dingle, 2007) (Sergio Castillo-Pérez, 2010) (Silverman, 2011) (McCaffrey, Edwards, & Fannon, 2011).

Sobriety Unplugged Case studies prove the effectiveness of utilizing music as part of the treatment experience. Music is more than just entertainment; it is a proven, beneficial intervention in treatment. Music and the therapy process can create behavioral changes as well as the ability to process and identify emotions: (Bonde & Wilgram, 2001) (Aldridge & Fachner, 2010) (Baker, Gleadhill, & Dingle, 2007) (de l’Etoile, 2002) (Solanki, Zafar, & Rastogi, 2013) (Mössler, Assmus, Heldal, Fuchs, & Gold, 2012) (McCaffrey, Edwards, & Fannon, 2011).

All research shows that simply listening to music does not have the same effect; it is the live experience and the process after that creates the intense impact. Clients that have difficulties with appropriate social interaction at the verbal and non-verbal level, lack of motivation for communication, poor relationships, lack of ability in sharing experiences and poor sense of self, will benefit most from this type of therapy. (Bonde & Wilgram, 2001). (Aldridge & Fachner, 2010). In other words, this therapeutic experience will improve the outcome of treatment for the substance abuse population.

Professionals in the substance abuse field are always looking for ways to improve the therapeutic experience for their clients. Key components of achieving and maintaining recovery are: motivation, optimism, hope, and coping skills (learning how to deal with and express emotions in a healthy way). Many times, clients have a difficult time opening up, expressing, and processing their emotions. Due to having limited time with clients (often 30 days in treatment), clinicians must look for effective ways in bringing about this process as quickly as they can so they can help the client begin the process of healing. RIR does this in a way that will engage the client, capture their attention, entertain them and have such a profound impact on their life; they can carry it with them always.

The Story: Sobriety Unplugged Musicians walk in capturing the undivided attention of everyone in the room. After all, this is not just a speaker coming in; this is RIR musicians, guitarists and song writers. Clients are looking forward to hearing their story and will listen intently as our musicians share their personal struggle with substance abuse and their journey to recovery. RIR musicians share their experiences in a way that will make them laugh, contemplate and often times cry.

The Music: Sobriety Unplugged musicians and sometimes a special guest will then perform; singing and playing songs about active addiction and recovery. The lyrics and music combined produce a multitude of emotional reactions, surprising the clients as the experience brings to light emotions they have had a difficult time expressing or perhaps were unaware of.

The Therapy: Clients have come for this very special treat looking forward to the break in routine. They have had RIR musical contributors come to perform just for them. Every emotion they have experienced has been natural; unintentional. This is entertainment, not therapy right? Actually, though they are unaware, this experience with the RIR musical contributor has created an amazing opportunity for emotional growth, gaining coping skills, knowledge, hope and the opportunity to walk away from this experience one step closer to their new lives. Jack Kelly CAP, who is familiar with RIR and the experience will now help the clients process the emotions they felt and discovered, the hope and motivation they found, and show them how they can use all of this as a coping skill both now and in the future as a tool in their recovery. Using this experience as a way to elicit and process emotions with a clinician in a group setting also allows the facility to bill as a group session.

Sobriety Unplugged – The Impact: The experience of RIR can be the beginning of therapy for clients who have a difficult time expressing themselves, bring forth emotions and experiences clients were previously unaware they had, give hope, add motivation and provide a different outlet for clients to express themselves. Clients can learn to channel their emotions and even escape from reality for a few moments without having to use a drink or drug to do so.

Sobriety Unplugged Musicians stories, lyrics about substance use, their struggles, and recovery allow clients to process through music what many can’t through other means; creating that opening and breaking down that wall. Specifically to SUD, music and the therapy that follows provide the opportunity for the client to access feelings that are both integral to their addiction and pose obstacles in recovery.

Remember “Sobriety Unplugged”, visits schools, sober events, conferences, sober houses,addiction detox centers, drug and alcohol treatment centers all over the United States. Sobriety Unplugged along with select members of the come to share their message of hope, and play an unplugged set of songs geared towards recovery.

John Hollis – RIR Co-Founder

By John Hollis, RIR Co-Founder – It was 2004 and I was stuck in a room drinking and drugging like a pig. I was using 24 hours a day 7 days a week. My state of mental health was off the chain to say the least. Deep down inside I was on a road to death and knew it and was really ok with it. It’s Always Darkest Before Dawn.

I was working in the Midwest and every night I would spend hours getting high, watching porn, and listening to music online. One night I was searching my favorite musical artist Eric Clapton. To my surprise up came a video of him talking about his recovery and how his life had changed. I was blown away, and started to listen to it over and over. This video of my musical hero gave me so much hope. I was near death and it took two more years to come into recovery. I always kept playing that video over and over in my head it gave me hope over the next two years in times of suicidal and morbid thinking.

eric-clapton-music-quotesTwo years after I got sober in 2006, Rockers in Recovery® was formed in 2008 by Lori Welch Sullivan and Myself. What began as a radio program to spread the message of recovery through news, interviews, and music has grown into a multifaceted media and production company.

In 2010, I was invited by Kim Martin, Program Director of Crossroads Centre Antigua to broadcast live from Clapton’s Crossroads Guitar Festival. What an amazing day, the Rockers In Recovery® -Music Festivals vision was born that day. A way to carrying a message of  Addiction Education & Awareness and do it through Rock-N-Roll.

John Hollis Founder of Rockers In Recovery

2010 Crossroads Guitar Festival

On February 12, 2011 the vision came true, we did our first Education & Awareness music festival called love of recovery. We have gone on to produce twenty seven concerts, festivals, and drug and alcohol addiction community meet and greets across the United States. Rockers in Recovery® now attracts thousands to our music festivals and reaches millions more through our online media reach. The message Rockers in Recovery® is spreading through rock ‘n’ roll: there is hope, addiction recovery is possible.

I thank Eric Clapton for being open about his recovery and for being a power of example to me to this day. Unbeknownst to me, through the work of my Higher Power, that experience helped me to shift my thinking towards recovery, it would also become many visions to a movement that would change my life and many others.

Free Recovery Rock Festivals Help Educate About Addiction

Rockers In Recovery® – Media

2017 Recovery Rock FestBy; Christopher Hollis – Opioids were involved in 28,647 deaths in 2014 and opioid overdoses have quadrupled since 2000.

Significant increases in drug overdose death rates were seen in the Northeast, Midwest and South Census Regions. In 2014, the five states with the highest rates of death due to drug overdose were West Virginia, New Mexico, New Hampshire, Kentucky and Ohio. States with statistically significant increases in the rate from 2013 to 2014 included Alabama, Georgia, Illinois, Indiana, Maine, Maryland, Massachusetts, Michigan, New Hampshire, New Mexico, North Dakota, Ohio, Pennsylvania and Virginia.

It’s time to bring education and awareness to the current Opioid/Heroin Epidemic and Rockers In Recovery® has planned six events for 2017 to do just that. This epidemic is devastating the United States as a whole, with hundreds of deaths a day nationwide currently. Here are some of the community meet and greets and festivals scheduled so far;

6th Annual Free Community Addiction Educational Meet and Greet – 02/10/17 Pembroke Pines,Florida
6th Annual Fl. Love of Recovery Free Music Festival – 02/11/17 Pembroke Pines, Florida
1st Annual Pa. – Love of Recovery Free Music Festival 09/08/17 – 09/09/17 Wilkes-Barre,Pennsylvania

*Each Festival has an additional event the night before called the “Free Community Addiction Educational Meet and Greet.” 

EDUCATIONAL – It’s dedicated to provide the community with addiction prevention and education information to help families, community outreach leaders and anyone who suffers with drug addiction and alcoholism.

The thinking and actions around the RIR Meet & Greets are simple: educate and help people in need. The RIR teams up with addiction professionals known as recovery special event partners that are present at all of the Meet & Greets. The most important point is to provide answers to people seeking help.

“Recovery is a Process” and Rockers In Recovery® has amassed some epic speakers and some long term in recovery rockers on the topic. This is to help communities know that there is hope and they can find resources.

RIR is not a treatment center – Since it launched in 2008, Rockers in Recovery®, a for-profit media and production company, has attracted tens of thousands to its music festivals and reached millions more through its online reach. The message the organization is spreading through rock ‘n’ roll: there is hope, addiction recovery is possible.

Since the start of their music festivals in February of 2011, attendees can go right to the recovery information tent manned all day with addiction professionals to help everyone. Each RIR Festival has bands and solo acts along with a list of 10-minute addiction professional speakers in between bands. RIR is educating while having fun in a fun, loving environment. Festival goers also Enjoy Music, Recovery Speakers, Arts and Crafts Exhibitors , Food Vendors, Recovery Merchandise, Addiction Education, Evidenced Based Treatment Options , and Veteran P.T.S.D./Addiction education Information.

John Hollis, RIR Co- Founder

It’s Amazing, and they are so proud to see how since 2011 and twenty five of their own productions, the Rockers In Recovery® (RIR) concept of recovery concerts/festivals to carrying a message of Education & Awareness is working.

“This same message is now being duplicated by many in the addiction recovery advocacy movement groups like the October, 2015 Washington DC Unite to Face Addiction Rally (with Joe Walsh and other well know musicians) , the 2014 Fed Up Rally, and the 2016 SAMHSA’s National Prevention Week and Recovering Artists Worldwide(RAW – there is a charge for their events). It’s happening all over the United States. Since 2014 many treatment programs have even adopted as a modality in the form of RIR Unplugged, with some using the concept as primary treatment.  What an honor and we look forward to seeing many more use our unique form of addiction prevention and education”. Says John Hollis, RIR Co- Founder.

Quote by Tom Coderre, Senior White House Advisor to SAMHSA (Feb.14, 2015): – “Rockers In Recovery® brings the private treatment sector, addiction education, 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.”

Clearbrook Treatment Centers – “I would like to express our gratitude for the tremendous support and attention Rockers In Recovery has garnered for us. Combining Music with Recovery Media along with recovery music events was a remarkable vision and gift that Lori Sullivan and John Hollis Founders of Rockers In Recovery Radio & Productions has shared with us. The passion and dedication of Lori and John’s organization is inspiring! John and the team touch millions of people in recovery every day with their song of hope. Thank you Lori and John  for all you do for us and everyone battling this disease!” – Clearbrook Treatment Centers of Pennsylvania – CEO, Dr. Nick Colangelo

They do free community education concerts through Rock-N-Roll all over the United States. Some are just to name a few, the D&R Theater Aberdeen Washington, to a standing room only crowd with the same results at the luxury hotel in the heart of Las Vegas, known as the Bellagio. RIR was Rockin’ the 2014 RecoveryWalks at Penns Landing, Philadelphia, Pa. in front of 23,000 people, along with the 4th Annual RIR Music Festival in Feb 2015. RIR also donated the RIR Band & production services to the Hope All Day Festival in New Jersey 2015. This was to help raise funds for the Hope All Day Foundation.

14102691_10211086995637623_5925307549568595138_nRIR just came off the road from their Stop Overdose – Opioid/Heroin Education and Awareness meet and greet & “Maine Love Of Recovery Music Festival” which was held at Clark’s Cove Farm in Walpole, ME. On August 26 & 27, 2016 both events were Free to all.

The Special Guest Speakers were Sara Gideon (Freeport), Maine Assistant House Majority Leader and Dr. Kimberly Johnson (Washington, DC), Director of the Center for Substance Abuse Treatment at SAMHSA.

Now, decades into recovery from hard-core drug and alcohol addictions, a handful of members from some of the hottest rock bands of the 1970s and ’80s are joining forces to prove to musicians and music lovers alike a greater truth: Life after sobriety can still be a rocking good time.
