Andy Pucher, NCADD President/CEO, will participate at a special event at the White House on Wednesday, September 17, to commemorate the 25th Anniversary of Recovery Month.
This special event, called "Recovery Month at the White House: Celebrating 25 Years," will take place from 2:00 p.m. - 4:00 p.m. and will be streamed live on www.WhiteHouse.gov/Live.
It is being hosted by the Office of National Drug Control Policy (ONDCP) and will feature tweets with questions for panelists in recovery.
The panel will be moderated by Laurie Dhue, a TV journalist and recovery advocate, and will include Christina Huffington, a young person in recovery; Cris Carter, former NFL player and current ESPN analyst in recovery; Ruben Castaneda, Washington Post journalist and author of S Street Rising about his recovery; and Tim Wilson, mayor of Brooklyn Center, Minnesota.
