Presented annually, the Dry Society Social Club Awards honors people and organizations making strides and influencing change to advance behavioral health and addiction right here in our community. In its first year, we recognized community members and the outstanding work being done in prevention, intervention, treatment, recovery, innovation, and the reduction of social stigma. The INSPIRE Awards honor people and organizations within the following categories:

Now in its 32nd year, Recovery Month celebrates the gains made by those in recovery, just as we celebrate improvements made by those who are managing other health conditions such as hypertension, diabetes, asthma, and heart disease.
