EDUCATIONAL - It's dedicated to providing the community with addiction prevention and education information to help families, community outreach leaders and anyone who suffers with drug addiction and alcoholism.

Quote by RIR Meet & Greet Guest Speaker Sara Gideon (D-Freeport):
"The governor keeps saying he wants to address the state's drug epidemic. Comments like the one he made in Bridgton keep Maine from moving forward on this front. If the governor is serious about tackling this crisis, he should stop standing in the way of the Legislature's comprehensive plan and help Mainers desperate for treatment get the care they need."

Quote by Tom Coderre, Senior White House Advisor to SAMHSA (Feb.14, 2015):
"Rockers In Recovery® brings the private treatment sector, addiction education, and the addiction advocacy non-profit sector together in a unique way as no one else is doing anywhere in the United States. What makes RIR unique: the message is all around and through the universal language of music with some great rockers of our day. They combine it with educational speakers and advocacy groups. RIR brings it all together at their community addiction education meet and greets, and addiction awareness and prevention concerts/festivals."
