More About America Honors Recovery
In 2004, The Johnson Institute founded America Honors Recovery, an annual awards program to recognize people who are in long-term recovery from addiction to alcohol or other drugs and have given back to their communities so that future generations can experience the reality of recovery. Four years later, Faces & Voices of Recovery started the Joel Hernandez Voice of the Recovery Community annual awards program to recognize one local, state or regional recovery community organization for its success in assessing the specific needs of their community and carrying out a vision and mission of mobilizing resources within and outside the recovery community to increase the prevalence and quality of long-term recovery from addiction to alcohol and other drugs.
In 2009 The Johnson Institute transferred key programs including America Honors Recovery to Hazelden's Center for Public Advocacy to keep the Johnson Institute's 43-year legacy alive. In 2011, a special award in the name of Faces & Voices founding board chair, Lisa Mojer-Torres was established.
Faces & Voices of Recovery and Caron Treatment Centers have joined together to host America Honors Recovery honoring the legacies of Joel Hernandez, Vernon Johnson and Lisa Mojer-Torres. All contributions to the America Honors Recovery awards event will go to Faces & Voices of Recovery. For questions, please email or call Jerry Gillen at (202)737-0690.
