From: http://recoveryrockfest.com:

mission:
It is known that 1 in 7 people from age 12 and older will have an issue with addiction and it is estimated that 40 million people are affected as a whole. RecoveryRockFest wishes to provide a substance free folk/rock concert in celebration of recovery and for those who desire a substance-free lifestyle. A portion of funds will go to support our local university UNCW-CRC Recovery Program* for students in recovery which offers resources for UNCW students in recovery from alcohol and drug addiction, gambling addiction, and those affected by other people’s addictions.

our goals for rrf:
– raise awareness and bring the community together in celebration of recovery
– raise the funds needed for our inaugural event to then be a self-supporting event through ticket sales
– become a not-for-profit after the first year with an opportunity for people to serve for this event
– be an ongoing annual substance-free event for our community

some rrf history:
RecoveryRockFest (originally named Recovery Rocks) first started in 2009 in a small cafe in Bradenton, FL. It allowed people in recovery and their friends to enjoy a substance free concert in celebration of recovery, and to meet others in the community. RecoveryRockFest has moved to Wilmington, NC and we look forward to having this event here in our new recovery community.

Nyla’s story:
Addiction affects many families, friends, loved ones, and has also affected myself and my family. It is important to me to give back and to be a part of something that can carry a message of hope of recovery. To come together in one place through the language of music, and to share and show that recovery is worth it, and that we are not alone. Many people still struggle with addiction and I know for myself that when I met other people in recovery, I didn’t feel so alone. I personally have been in long term recovery for just over 23 years. It has allowed me to also be of further service to my community. It is something I get to do, and I am grateful to be able be a part of a positive message.

I personally welcome you to join us on our first year in Wilmington for RecoveryRockFest!

In love and service, Nyla
