Breaking the stigma of addiction

with the power of art

Join Healing Transitions on March 28th as they kick off a brand new art event in Raleigh! The Art of Recovery is a FREE, two-part event featuring artwork from local artists who are in recovery or have been impacted by addiction. This powerful event will leave you with a new perspective on addiction and recovery.

Removing the Mask

The theme for this year’s Art of Recovery is “Removing the Mask”! Since addiction is highly stigmatized in today’s society, many people who have been impacted by the disease often do so without talking to anyone about it. In many cases, we may not know someone has struggled with addiction until they courageously remove their mask of anonymity and share their experience!

So this year, we are inviting artists who have been impacted by addiction to remove their masks and share their stories with the community. By doing so, we create a space where important conversations about addiction and recovery can happen, which will help break the stigma associated with the disease!
