Rockers In Recovery® Radio - RIR'S Next Free Community Meet & Greet and Free Festival is August 26 & 27, 2016. The Maine Love of Recovery Music Festival - Rockin' The Great State of Maine
We Are Not A Treatment Program - Rockers In Recovery Radio & Productions (Rockers In Recovery® - RIR) is an organization with the sole mission to provide prevention and education to anyone who suffers with drug addiction/alcoholism. In the beginning our thought was (and still is) "if we can just help one person" it's worth the labor of love. Well, over the years we have been able reach millions online to educate and help thousands seeking recovery from addiction at our events.
Education is the key to unlock the door of freedom and Rockers In Recovery is dedicated to addiction recovery through music, news, interviews, events, and festivals taking place within our communities across the United States. Multiple Media addiction/education informational based websites with lots of Social Media platforms is how we educate. Our addiction/education message reaches millions of people globally with just a click of a mouse and thousands face to face at our concerts, festivals and events.
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. Our shared common goal to spread hope and enlightenment across the country has turned out to be something we never expected.
Twenty Four RIR Concerts and Festivals Since 2011 all started at our 1st Annual Love of Recovery Music & Art Festival in Pembroke Pines Fl.. RIR has teamed up on a community grass roots level to help a lot over the past 5 years, we have gone on to produce twenty four concert and festival productions. RIR was the first recovery origination producing addiction and awareness through Rock-N-Roll at the 2012 ATP - International Tennis Championship to a NYC sold out show at the Cutting Room for the missed placed victims that were devastated from Hurricane Sandy. In addition to a benefit concert, RIR did another community event at a local Connecticut school to benefit a street-level non-profit business. RIR put together what was a benefit for the Special Olympics of South Florida and the Sheriff's Foundation of Broward County.
The thinking and actions around the RIR camp are simple; educate, help people in need of help for a loved one or themselves. RIR teams up with addiction professionals that are present at all of these shows, in order to provide answers to people seeking help. People can go right to the recovery information tent manned all day to help everyone. Each show has bands and solo acts along with a list of 10 minute addiction professional speaker in between bands. RIR is educating while have fun in a fun loving environment.
We do many free community awareness and prevention 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. RIR was Rockin' the 2014 RecoveryWalks at Penns Landing, Philadelphia, Pa. in front of 23,000 people, along with the 4th Annual RIR Music Festival in Feb 2015. RIR also donated the RIR Band & production services to the Hope All Day Festival in New Jersey 2015 (SAMHSA'S National Prevention Week). This was to help raise funds for the Hope All Day Foundation.

This event is free to all and open to everyone to bring awarness to the current Heroin Epidemic that is devastating the great state of Maine and the united states as a whole, with 120 deaths a day nationwide. Maine's Choopers Foundation is donating the venue and International Overdose Awareness Day (IOAD) and other addiction professionals will be there to support families in need.
Recovery is having the power to get your life back by letting go to the aspects of life to a higher power. By relinquishing control to the things we cannot change, we realize there is more fulfillment and empowerment when we ask for help and return it by helping others in ways we can.
