Events, Gatherings & Transformative Experiences

Open Recovery is a powerful paradigm – a call for justice—and a celebration of what is possible. Our pop-up recovery events are empowering experiences that strengthen the recovery movement and envourages individuals to live openly, freely, and without shame. Open Recovery has been the subject at presenations, lectures and discussion at symposiums, conferences, and via print, radio and social media outlets.  Open Recovery partners with other non-proft/for-profit organizations, foundations, sponsors and donors to bring these events and presenations into communities, schools, organzizations and media.  

To explore partnering with Open Recovery  or to invite a speaker for interview/presenation, please contact us via
