Mobilize Recovery 2023


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 they crossed the county, Mobilize Recovery 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, their message of hope reached over 1 million Americans through Facebook and iHeart. Over 12,000 people attended their 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 the community to action. They're hosting their 2023 national meeting in the nation’s capital, Washington, D.C. (September 17 – 19, 2023). Learn more and submit your application to join them in September.
