We must be united in the war against addiction! My mission is to unite organizations,support groups, and everyone else who needs a helping hand. I am here to educate equip and develop a Recovery resource Network. My hope is that everyone gets the help they need and no one is left behind or alone in their fight for freedom from addiction. Join me and lets fight the good fight! Our Philosophy: Instigate, Agitate, Educate, and Liberate!
PRO-ACT is delighted to announce that the Rockers In Recovery All-Star Band will be entertaining us at our 13th Annual Walk on September 20 in Penn's Landing. They have kindly added our Recovery Walk to their nationwide tour, which is already under way (call 877-799-8773 for further information or click here).
The band's main purpose is to spread hope and love with the message
that treatment for addiction and education, mixed with "having fun" in
recovery, is indeed possible!
The RIR All-Stars combine cream-of-the-crop musicians that are in
recovery or support recovery. As pioneers of rock-and-roll recovery,
they are creating a new image for rock and roll--not only is it alive
and well, but alive and sober. By marching shoulder to shoulder through
each moment of every
day they intend to let all people affected by addiction know it will
get better. Through hope, love, and music, they work to heal.
Among those performing with the Band will be Mark Bosch, Lead Guitar (Ian Hunter, The Rant Band, Garland
Jeffreys); Steve Holley, Drummer (Paul McCartney and Wings, Elton John,
Joe Cocker); Lou Esposito, Vocals, Guitar (The Capris, Joe Walsh, Chuck
Berry, Bo Diddly); and Paul Page, Bass (Ian Hunter, The Rant Band, John
Cale, Dion). Each of them, with smiles on their faces, has a
charismatic and genuine energy that comes from within their soul.

Recovery Idol Competition
Round 4 of the Auditions is coming up on June 26, 12 noon, at the
Community College of Philadelphia, 1700 Spring Garden Street in
Philadelphia. Only a couple more auditions are left before the two
finalists will perform on September 20
at PRO-ACT Recovery Walks! in Penn's Landing. We'll have judges there
to select the winner, but your support of your favorite singer will
definitely help their performances, accompanied by the Recovery Idol Band.
Recovery Idol was founded in 2011 by the Philadelphia Recovery
Coalition to showcase the talent of persons in recovery and promote
positive self image and self expression. Many of the competitors thought
their lives were over before finding recovery. Said one competitor, "I
was tired of hurting people. I didn't want to die and have my children
say, 'If only she had quit.'" At 50 now, she added, "I'm only just
beginning to live."
The winner receives a plaque, studio recording time, and an opportunity to perform before tens of thousands of people.
