Our 6th Annual Recovery Day for lawyers, law students, judges, and other legal professionals is on September 22nd! 

Recovery Day is for those in our community who are:

  • On journeys of recovery from substance addictions
  • On journeys of recovery from addictive or compulsive behaviors
  • Wondering whether our dependence qualifies as addiction

Please join us for a day of social support, conversation, and free food. We’ll hear from speakers and engage in discussions about the struggles we face in relation to our identities and other insights from our journeys that can help improve our community.

RSVP here! 

THIS EVENT IS CONFIDENTIAL. Everyone in attendance is required to respect anonymity.

We also invite you to join us the following day at Shatterproof’s Rise Up Against Addiction 5k Walk/Run — or you can just donate to our fundraising goal!
