This Online Recovery Festival will showcase all of the amazing successes

happening in New Mexico that build hope and strength for those

living an inspiring life of recovery.

Behavioral Health Recovery, including recovery from substance use, grief, mental illness, or other life crises will be video-celebrated with recovery stories, information segments, music performances, poetry readings, and

interactive booths for artists, health organizations, and festival sponsors. 

Resources, support information, and calls for action will also be

highlighted during this online interactive event.


Just like any great Festival, our Stronger Together Online Recovery Festival will have a “Main Stage” which is the video broadcast (an inspiring show made up of the inspirational videos) and an "Exhibition Hall" featuring agencies, artists, and organizations that want an opportunity to network and connect.
Our Exhibition Hall will showcase your "virtual booth" where you can interact though video chat with Festival attendees!
