Why: In Bexar County, the average age of first alcohol or drug use is eleven years old. Thankfully, Rise Recovery serves as San Antonio’s premier recovery resource for youth and young adults, providing over 40 years of support to them and their families at no charge. All funds raised at the Benefit Breakfast will support the services that lead to ongoing recovery of over 3,000 youth, young adults and families we serve annually.

About Event: Featured Keynote by David and Nic Sheff, father and son who inspired the major motion picture Beautiful Boy: Bestselling authors David and Nic crafted memoirs Beautiful Boy and Tweak and recently co-authored High, a constructive resource written for middle grade readers about the realities of drugs, alcohol and addiction and how to cope with the pressures of youth. They will share with our guests their real-life journey through addiction and recovery. On Friday, May 17, Rise Recovery will host over 500 expected guests, including corporate, civic, and recovery community leaders, at our Annual Benefit Breakfast held at the Omni San Antonio Hotel at the Colonnade. This event is our largest fundraiser of the year and raises funds necessary to support no-fee programs and services offered to over 3,000 of our most vulnerable youth and families in the greater San Antonio area. The Breakfast will include testimonial video of Rise Recovery program participants, featured keynote, a Program update, matching grant fundraiser, raffle and silent auction.

Rise Recovery: Our mission is to help teens, young adults and families overcome the effects of drugs and alcohol and partner with the community in education and prevention. Our vision is to provide an open door to recovery services to those in need and continue to provide it at no cost to them.
