Event Description: 
#BTRR 2017 is the statewide Recovery Rally Event that caps off Recovery Month activities in Texas. BTRR was originally initiated by Texas Recovers, a coalition of 8 Recovery Community Organizations across the state. The Rally was originally held on the steps of the capital in Austin, but has "traveled" over the last few years. The Rallly has featured speakers including Greg Williams, Tara Connor, Mackenzie Phillips, William C. Moyers, Brian Cuban, and Michael Bottacelli. This year's rally is brought to you by Brazos Place and Kemah Palms Recovery, along with many other recovery stakeholders and advocates. We will gather this year in Galveston on October 7, 2017, to generate a unified message of hope, strength, and courage for people and families in recovery from, or still struggling with, substance use. The Rally has alwasy been, and will always be FREE to attendants. ​ We are excited to gather with you at Moody Gardens in support of recovery, from alcohol and other substance use disorders. Live bands, dignitaries from the national recovery movement, public officials, persons in recovery, families, community supporters, keynote speakers, and friends of recovery will join the celebration.
