Opening the Door

Recovery is a journey – one that in most cases isn’t a linear path. Those who struggle with addiction every day often feel a sense of hopelessness with no end in sight. That’s why our theme for Art of Recovery 2021 is “Opening the Door“. Because when someone courageously takes the first step toward recovery and asks for help, they are opening the door to a community of hope. And at HT, our doors are open as many times as it takes for someone to find recovery.

At the same time, there are many people who don’t realize how prevalent recovery is in our community – or may not even understand what recovery is. Our society is filled with people who once struggled with addiction and are now thriving. By inviting artists who have been impacted by addiction to express their stories, we are helping open the door to connect the larger Triangle community with its incredible recovery community.
