The My Recovery Day Jam Outreach Benefit Streamed Live From the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame - Register Your Organization to Host a Free Watch Party!
My Recovery Day Jam 2023 – Recovery is Possible and it Rocks. The purpose of the event is to help reduce the stigma around asking for help, showing that recovery is possible and you can have fun sober. Sober musicians from 3 bands will share their message of hope and recovery then play with their band. In order to reach individuals struggling with recovery, the event is streamed live so treatment centers and sober houses can promote it and host a watch party for their clients and alumni. Last year, the event was streamed live to 186 treatment centers across 36 states with an audience of over 10,000 individuals in 2022. There were also over 200 in-person attendees. As of August 12, there are over 1,000 recovery organizations that are hosting watch parties across all 50 states. Here is just one of the messages of hope from Marc Lee Shannon below and some photos from the performing artists at the event.
2023 Featured Artists

A Crisis That Touches Everyone
Substance Use Disorder (SUD) is our number one public health crisis in America today. It’s estimated that there are 46.3 million Americans ages 12 and older who meet the criteria for substance use disorder. Addiction is a disorder which has no racial, ethnic, geographic, economic, religious or educational boundaries. It is truly an equal opportunity disease.
Studies suggest that for each person who suffers from substance use disorder at least 5 to 6 other individuals who are primarily their family members are significantly impacted by the consequences and related issues of their loved one’s addiction related behaviors. That means there could be approximately 246 million individuals whose lives have been impacted.
In 2019 a Gallop Poll survey reported that 46% of adults in the United States have had to deal with substance use disorder in their family. Untreated substance use disorder in America contributes to divorce, child abuse and neglect, increased health care costs, crime and hundreds of thousands of premature deaths annually. The current annual economic loss due to substance use disorder is estimated to be well over $850 billion dollars in the United States.
My Recovery Day Beginnings
My Recovery Day officially began in 2016 as a Northeast Ohio 501c3 nonprofit whose mission is to develop and provide support resources for individuals with substance use disorder giving them the help and hope they need for sustainable recovery. As an organization whose board, staff and volunteers are either in recovery or have a deep understanding of recovery, we get that it is more than just stopping the drinking and/or drug use. Our treatment and recovery partners do a great job of helping individuals detox, giving them the opportunity to change their lives as they launch out in recovery. So how can My Recovery Day help support this change required for individuals that have chosen the path of recovery? Today, My Recovery Day's programs touch lives locally and nationally.
My Recovery Day Programs Supporting Recovery
Our programs speak to several of the key determinants of what are commonly referred to as "social determinants of health". According to the Department of Health and Human Services, social determinants of health (SDOH) are the conditions in the environments where people are born, live, learn, work, play, worship, and age that affect a wide range of health, functioning, and quality-of-life outcomes and risks. Here is a brief overview of our core programs and how each one supports individuals in recovery
