A moment to educate Americans that treatment can enable those with a substance use disorder and/or a mental health condition to live a healthy and rewarding life. It celebrates the gains made by those in recovery from substance use and mental health, to reduce stigma and inspire hope.
iHeartMedia and Mobilize Recovery are excited to welcome back Grammy award-winning artist Macklemore to the Washington, D.C. in-person event.
We’re harnessing the power of the substance use and mental health recovery community to create a better world through service. Join us on September 30 for Mobilize Recovery’s inaugural Day of Service, and give back to your community in support of recovery.
Mobilize Recovery is an annual experience that brings participants together to build capacity for organized community engagement for people in recovery, family members, and recovery allies. Its mission is to expand policy to support recovery, create connections to supportive services that are vital and lifesaving, and to engage affected individuals in meaningful action.
Now in its fifth year, Mobilize Recovery has become a nationwide phenomenon.
In 2022, Mobilize Recovery launched a national bus tour (Mobilize Recovery Across America) that traveled over 10,403 miles – passing over 25 states and the District of Columbia – and hosted over 35 organizing events. By the end of the tour, the bus was covered with thousands of messages and names that represented an extraordinary amount of hope.
Together as we crossed the county, we distributed over 11,000 fentanyl test strips, 10,000 doses of naloxone, hosted organizing trainings, public narrative trainings, and new ways for the recovery community to engage. In just under one month, our message of hope reached over 1 million Americans through Facebook and iHeart. Over 12,000 people attended our in-person events.
Mobilize Recovery Across America wasn’t just about hope, though; it was about action.
That’s why in 2023, Mobilize Recovery is committed to building on our successful bus tour by calling our community to action. We’re hosting our 2023 national meeting in our nation’s capital, Washington, D.C. (September 17 – 19, 2023). Learn more and submit your application to join us in September.
Bringing together a diverse cross-sector cohort of advocates, allies, and stakeholders to drive measurable, sustainable, and action-oriented solutions that create resilient communities of recovery.
Now in its fifth year, Mobilize Recovery 2023 will bring together recovery advocates, nonprofit organizations, allies, business leaders and brands, government partners, and like-minded community-based organizations with an interest in creating sustainable change and community solutions.
We will mobilize partnership support and education to help uplift, measure, scale, and sustain the work of our Mobilizers heading into 2024.
We will work with Mobilizers to develop action oriented goals that can be measured and scaled. We believe in the power of a bottom-up approach that supports advocates, creators, and communities on the front lines.
