Rock and Recovery™ is a community for people experiencing addiction, trauma and mental health issues. Built around the healing power of music, Rock and Recovery™ supports self-motivation, shares information and resources, and offers personal serenity both on-air and online.
Rock and Recovery™ mobilizes and supports a regional and national recovery community that grows and heals together through the therapeutic power of music and shared messages of hope and inspiration.
FROM AKRON, OHIO
Based in Akron, Ohio – the birthplace of Alcoholics Anonymous and the modern recovery movement – Rock and Recovery™ mixes music with stories and resources that will inspire and offer strength and hope to support each individual recovery journey.
Rock and Recovery™ uses the healing power of music as a platform for support featuring an extensive mix of specially curated songs. The music is uplifting (but not preachy), reflective (but not spiritual), and features many popular and classic songs you already know and love.
Rock and Recovery™ weaves “information capsules” – personal stories, anecdotes and real-time, modern intervention strategies – from professional health-care providers, recovering addicts and their families, artists, musicians, and many more. Listen for the ultra-personal My Recovery Rocks sound bytes and Rock and Recovery™ Minutes on air and online, and visit the website or download the app for full live interviews, through Recovery Talks!
Rock and Recovery™ is highly accessible, providing 24/7/365 support through a dedicated streaming audio website and mobile app, and airing regionally seven nights a week, from 10:00 p.m. to 1:00 a.m. on WAPS (91.3FM) Akron/Canton, and WKTL (90.7FM) Youngstown/Warren and western PA. Rock and Recovery™ also offers a fast-growing and active social media community on Facebook and Twitter.
Rock and Recovery™ resources connect and engage individuals in recovery from addiction, trauma and mental health challenges with a community of peers, sharing information and personal journeys, and inspiring hope and healing. Among many other outcomes, the unique program model:
+Provides creative wrap-around support for professional treatment programs
+Increases sense of hope and calls to action that improve quality of life for individuals and their circle of friends and family
+Mobilizes regional, national and global recovery and mental health communities
Rock and Recovery™ is a dynamic, growing program and community. We invite you to join us…to listen, interact through our social media platforms, and reach out to others in recovery who share a love of music. We are in this together.
The primary mission is to provide entertaining and meaningful music with positive messaging, mixing individual testimonials with humor, to those addicted to alcohol or other substances as well as to their families and loved ones.
