America Honors Recovery Awards Gala & Dinner
America Honors Recovery is Faces & Voices of Recovery's annual awards gala which celebrates and honors the most influential recovery community leaders and organizations. The event salutes the legacies of three dynamic recovery trailblazers who dedicated their lives to removing barriers for individuals and families affected by addiction - Dr. Vernon E. Johnson and recovery advocates Joel Hernandez and Lisa Mojer-Torres.
The Joel Hernandez Award recognizes one local, state or regional recovery community organization for its success in assessing the specific needs of their community and carrying out a vision and mission of mobilizing resources within and outside the recovery community to increase the prevalence and quality of long-term recovery from addiction to alcohol and other drugs.
The Lisa Mojer-Torres Award honors a tenacious fighter who believed in the dignity and rights of every person. Lisa's inquiring and challenging mind offered new insights and by example, she encouraged us to stand up and speak out on behalf of all pathways to recovery, including the use of medications.
The Vernon Johnson Award recognizes three individuals who have given back to their communities so that future generations can experience the reality of recovery.
The Voice of Recovery Award recognizes an individual who has shared their story in a very public way to demonstrate the power and proof of long-term recovery.
