SoberMap App

Learn More @ SoberMap – Iphone Free Download – Android Free Download. –  SoberMap App Immediately Access 12 Step meetings in your vicinity, talking about  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

RIR- Radio Live (Episode 814) – Musician, Singer/Songwriter, Jack Spann -Topic? 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.

Joseph Antonelli – Music and Recovery

Joseph Antonelli – Music and Recovery; Stage name “Joe Zep” (Drummer/Vocals)

Listen To Interview Click Arrow

Joseph Antonelli – Music and Recovery; Stage name “Joe Zep” (Drummer/Vocals) is a dynamic performer, drummer, songwriter, and entertainer.

His boundless energy, charisma, presence, and sense of humor are contagious. His perfect meter, and ability to mesh into any style of music, without trying to overpower it, is what makes  Joe Zep so special. He always knows what to play, and more importantly, what not to play in a song, in order to allow the song’s full potential to be reached. This also holds true with the other performers on the stage. Joe Zep has the uncanny ability to accessorize the other artists in such a way to allow their performances to be highlighted. Therefore highlighting his own….. This is his creed, and the essence to which he approaches the instrument every time he sits behind the drums.

Born in Brooklyn NY.

Lives in Vero Beach Fla

Years playing 33

Music genres….Rock, Blues, Jazz, Swing, Country, Dance, Reggae.

Places played….All over the country, Europe, South America.

Paul Wilson – Rockin Recovery

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.

Music Producer Gary Tanin – What music producer Gary Tanin brings with his production style is the unique ability for patience, allowing music to be discovered, rather than manufactured. From his eclectic and contemporary musical influences he draws on the greats to infuse the production with a flair and appeal” said Ric Probst in a recent interview. “In the projects we’ve worked on together, I’ve always been impressed by his work ethic and attention to detail – truly a world class producer.”

Don Taylor – Music and Recovery

13590416_1350828628265607_4399664270457461464_n-768x576

Don Taylor  – Music and Recovery; I remember meeting my 6th grade friend Artimus Pyle drummer for the Lynyrd Skynyrd and his band mates on a Saturday (Leon Wilkeson, Ronnie Van Zant, Billy Powell, Allen Collins, Gary Rossington and Stevie Gaines), and after having talked some about me working with the band, if and when they added a horn section, we all headed together in a limo for Hawthorne Raceway (used normally for thoroughbred racing) for their show with Peter Frampton and Gary Wright, the “Dream Weaver”.

We all know what happened next, the tragic Lynyrd Skynyrd plane crash in October 1977. After the crash, and because he was relatively unhurt compared to the others who survived (four died, including band members Ronnie Van Zant and Stevie Gaines), Artimus moved back home with his wife and young son in northwest South Carolina, at the edge of the Blue Ridge Mountains, and formed the first Artimus Pyle Band (APB).

May 1978 was when I made my move. I began touring and performing with APB, and did so for the next eight years, mostly in the Carolinas. Luckily, I was always able to find decent day-jobs to support my family. We worked with The Marshall Tucker Band (also from South Carolina), both in the studio and on stage, and recorded two albums for MCA Records, “All-Points Bulletin” and “Nightstalker.”

1987 I had no way of knowing this, but right then plans were being made to do the Lynyrd Skynyrd Tribute Tour…it was to be a “one-time, nationwide tribute tour” to honor the deceased band members and crew. They asked me to join, I didn’t have to think much about that, I went from a manager-type to a musician in less than a second. And even though I had to wait 10 years (1977 to 1987) to play with the band, it was well worth the wait…a dream fulfilled: Me and Ronnie Eades, the original “Sax Attack” horn section for the band known as Lynyrd Skynyrd.

John Hollis – Music and Recovery

Co- Founder Rockers In Recovery, prevention/education for addiction and alcoholism through music.

Rockers In Recovery Co-Founder, John Hollis – Music and Recovery Radio – Episode 794 

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.
 
Two 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.
 
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 five Rockin’ Recovery 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.

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.

Tim McGraw – Bitterness keeps you from flyin’

Rockers In Recovery® – Media

John Hollis - RIR Co-Founder

John Hollis – RIR Co-Founder

By John Hollis RIR Co-Founder – Addiction Recovery is more than just not using, we have to take on a new way of thinking and living. There are times I’ve lost focus of this. Letting the fear and resentments of the day clog the channel to my spirit can stifle my helping others. So getting some alone time and looking at my behaviors, my attitudes, my motives, and how I’m treating others is very important to my recovery. One of the ways I get grounded, I Listen to music.

Videos like Tim McGraw’s – Humble And Kind, Written by Lori Mckenna is one of those songs that helps me to see what’s important, the  song gives me hope, and it also gives me a kind of sober running beacon in real time to check against my self-centered desires. Music is one of my recovery tools and videos like Humble and Kind helps me to ask myself, how am I living my life today?

One part of the lyrics I love the most is;
“Don’t expect a free ride from no one
Don’t hold a grudge or a chip and here’s why:
Bitterness keeps you from flyin’
Always stay humble and kind”

Check out the video, let me know your thoughts?

Tim McGraw – The country star gets candid about his past dependence on “liquid courage” and what was at stake if he didn’t get sober. Huffington Post – 08/26/2015

“You can come up with a million excuses why you drink too much,” he said. “Lack of confidence, the success that came so quickly, and then some of the things you didn’t realize was trauma, I guess, back when you were 11… I think the older you get, the more you start realizing those things.”

As time went on, McGraw came to the harsh realization for himself.

“It got to the point where I knew that I drank too much,” he said. “I knew that it was affecting my personal relationships, it was affecting my professional relationships, it was affecting my family. It was turning me into a person that I didn’t want to be… I was at a point where I could lose everything that I had in my life, first and foremost, my family. It [was] time to stop. And I stopped.”

Sober since 2008, the night before embarking on another tour, McGraw said he had his last drink. “ I flew to Florida that morning from being wasted the night before, and started that tour. Haven’t drank since.” Read more @ How Tim McGraw’s Drinking Nearly Cost Him Everything

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.

Addiction Education & Awareness Concept Through Music Is Working

Main RIR Recovery Radio Partner Sponsorship

It’s Amazing, and we are so proud to see how since 2011 (going on twenty nine of our 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 now the 2016 SAMHSA’s National Prevention Week. It’s happening all over the United States. Since 2014/2015 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.

Tom Coderre ,Senior White House Advisor to SAMHSA

    Tom Coderre

Feb.14, 2015, RIR Music Festival – Quote by Tom Coderre ,Senior White House Advisor to SAMHSA ”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”

Music Helps Addicts Feel Emotions Again

Main RIR Recovery Radio Partner Sponsorship

“Hurt” by Johnny Cash

John Hollis Co-Founder “Rockers In Recovery®”.

By John Hollis, Rockers In Recovery® Co-Founder –  “Hurt” by Johnny Cash – This is a song written by Trent Reznor first released on Nine Inch Nails’ 1994 album called The Downward Spiral. I’m a person in recovery from alcohol and drug addiction, and this video hits me right to my core. Seeing what seems to be Johnny Cash​’s life flashing before me in this video and knowing Cash’s own struggles with the same demons as myself, I can clearly feel the pain of his past. It was like he was passing on his message of a lifestyle that didn’t work. A warning of sorts to other suffers afflicted by the same demon’s.

It’s no wonder “Hurt” went on to commercial and critical acclaim. It attracted praise from Reznor for its “sincerity and meaning” while ending up being one of Cash’s final hits released before his death, who at the time was 11 years clean. The related Mark Romanek music video is considered one of the greatest of all time by publications such as NME.

In my opinion this is a addiction educational musical piece that should be played in treatment centers across the world. I believe it can help many in early recovery feel again and also see their own destructive active addiction behaviors. It may even sway a person actively using to say, “WOW” maybe I need help. I know the “Hurt” video has been a big therapeutic tool for my own recovery. This video helped me to feel emotions again, after being emotionally dead for years. It also helped me to see all the loved ones and friends that were left scorched by my addiction.

Thank you to Johnny Cash, Michael Trent Reznor, known professionally as Trent Reznor, an American singer-songwriter, record producer, film score composer, and Mark Romanek who’s dedication as a American filmmaker, brought Johnny Cash’s heartbreaking cover of Nine Inch Nails’ “Hurt.” on to a Grammy Award for Best Music Video. You can download the video @ http://goo.gl/SSHPSs

Rockin’ Roll and Recovery Come Together In The Palm Beaches

Rockers In Recovery® – Media

Archstone Recovery Center Archstone Recovery Center of the Palm Beaches is proud to recognize and support Rockers-in Recovery. Their goal…. to provide education and support about addiction, as well as, drug and alcohol rehab treatment options to different communities across the United States. Rockers in Recovery (RIR) is an organization with the sole mission of providing prevention and education to anyone who suffers with drug addiction and/or alcoholism. Most importantly the message of “Rockers In Recovery” is that addiction prevention and awareness mixed with “HAVING FUN” in recovery is indeed possible!! How they do this, is through several concert and festival fundraisers per year known as “Rockers In Recovery Festival/Concerts”.

Archstone Recovery Center understands that with education comes better choices…education provides power. It is one of the things that first drew us to RIR. They provide fun events that allow people to enjoy themselves while they provide valuable recovery information.

The decision to seek help and commit to treatment is a difficult one for many people. “Can I do it”, Will it last”, “Will my family support me”, “Where should I go for treatment”…….these and many more questions run through the mind. “How do I decide now is the time”….the answer everyone seeks, can only be answered by you….and the more information you possess about credible and ethical treatment facilities you have, the better decision you will make. This is the kind of information that RIR provides.

We also personalize your treatment plan based on whether you’re a man or woman since each sex experiences addiction differently. We also have a youth program for younger patients looking to make a change in their lives. If you’re interested in more information about our beautiful rehabilitation center of the Palm Beaches, browse our website or get to know Sally Gallen Sweeney by calling 561- 588-8323.

Rockers In Recovery – 2015 Year In Review

2015 RIR-Year In Review

Rockers In Recovery – 2015 Year In Review

 Where are we without a community? A community is what helps shape who we are and gives us values and helps strengthen our beliefs. Merriam-Webster defines “Community” as: an interacting population of various kinds of individuals (as species) in a common location.

Rockers In Recovery (RIR) is a community of dedicated people who live to carry a message of hope to addicts and alcoholics and their families who all are suffering. RIR shared common goal of spreading hope and enlightenment across the country has turned out to be something RIR never expected. We are not a treatment program. RIR is an organization with the sole mission to provide prevention and education to anyone who suffers with drug addiction and alcoholism. We do this through our Free Community Addiction Educational Meet & Greets and Free Community Music Festivals/Concerts

We also help educate many through our Multiple Media addiction/education informational based websites and Social Media platforms too. It all started in January 2008 doing interviews on RIR Addiction Talk Radio and 8 years later our addiction/education message is presented through the following; live concerts and festivals, community meet & greets, social media posting, RIR & Guest blogging, articles in the RIR magazine, (in print and online), RIR Live Concert and Event Streaming. This makes it easy for our addiction/education message to reach millions of people globally with just a click of a mouse.

Education is the key to unlock the door of freedom and Rockers In Recovery is dedicated to addiction recovery education through music, news, interviews, events, and festivals taking place within our communities across the United States.  We also get to help thousands face to face at our concerts, festivals and events and here are some places over 2015 we did just that;
