Motivation for the Event

According to the Substance Abuse and Mental Health Services Administration (SAMHSA), 22 million people needed substance abuse treatment last year and did not receive it. 10 million Americans did not receive needed mental health care. The stigma associated with substance abuse and mental health disorders creates a significant barrier for individuals and families seeking help. Foundations Recovery Network (FRN) has ignited a grassroots movement called Heroes in Recovery to celebrate the heroic efforts of individuals, families, healthcare professionals and institutions in fostering a society where people can seek the help they need without feeling ashamed or isolated. It intends to remove the social stigma associated with people who are in recovery, to recognize the heroic effort it takes to overcome the obstacles in seeking help, and to celebrate the act of preventing the past from kidnapping the future. While the movement initially focuses on persons recovering from addictive behavior, it is meant also to recognize heroes recovering from many other types of disorders and trauma that can feed an addiction. Much like similar movements for cancer research or AIDS awareness, it’s important for the public to understand, embrace and encourage people who are finding a way to thrive within their own circumstances and live the lives that they desire and deserve.
