It is known that 1 in 7 people from ages 12 and older will have an issue with addiction and is estimated that 40 million+ people are affected as a whole, with Wilmington, NC having been the highest ranked city statewide for opioid abuse.
Recovery Rock Fest's mission is to provide a free annual community outreach event inspiring recovery from addiction for the one who still suffers, and to extend support to the families and friends who have lost someone to addiction.
rrf mission and primary purpose
rrf beyond the music
MORE THAN ANYTHING RRF is for the one who thinks they are alone, and who may feel that recovery for them is not in reach. RRF provides a non-intimidating environment using music and unity with those who support recovery and who are in recovery. RRF offers an opportunity to inspire and be there when someone reaches for help. THE UNITY and community within recovery is far more vast than people may know and, we come together to place a footprint into the roots of Wilmington that recovery is possible and we honor those we have lost to addiction.
