Addiction Recovery Awareness Day 2023 | Rally, Conference, & More

Addiction Recovery Awareness Day 2023 - Arad 2023

Tuesday, January 24, 2023, 9:00 am

The Georgia Freight Depot, Martin Luther King Junior Drive Southwest, Atlanta, GA, USA

Each year, at the opening of Georgia’s legislative session, the recovery community joins together at the state capitol to speak to our legislators with our individual voices to share our message that Addiction is a preventable, treatable chronic health condition from which people do recover!


About the Event

Join us this year for the Recovery Rally, The Recovery Advocacy Press Conference, and to Meet your legislators!

Over 25 million Americans, including thousands of Georgians, are in long-term recovery. We are spreading hope because RECOVERY IS REAL!

The purpose of this day is to recognize and lift up the power of Recovery in the lives of everyday Georgians and to say thank you to for the bi-partisan support the Georgia Recovery Community receives from the General Assembly and our state Constitutional Officers.

We support initiatives that promote prevention & early intervention; increase opportunities and resources for treatment and support pro-recovery policies that increase the likelihood of sustained, long-term recovery. As Georgia’s policy-makers and leaders make decisions that affect all of us, they will see that RECOVERY IS HERE and RECOVERY IS REAL!


  • Recovery Ralley: 9:00 AM – 12:00 PM (Georgia Freight Depot)
  • Recovery Advocacy Press Conference: 12:30 pm – 1:30 PM (GA State Capitol)
  • Meet Your Legislator: 1:30 PM – 3:00 PM

About the Georgia Council For Recover

For Georgia Council for Recovery, “Nothing About Us Without Us” isn’t just a slogan, it’s a way of life. We don’t rely on our own lived experience when advocating for others- we talk to them, and help them build their own voices to add to ours. We provide the skills for communities and individuals in recovery to build connections, lift up resources, and impact positive change.
