Dear NYAPRS E-News Readers,

For over 3 decades, the NYAPRS Annual Conference has given thousands the unforgettable opportunity to find the hope, inspiration and support to create a new vision for what is possible within their lives....and the information to carry that forward.

Along the way, it has become one of the most acclaimed and admired events in the nation, well known for its unparalleled spirit and celebration of recovery, rehabilitation, rights, fellowship and a full life in the community for all.

Where else can you learn so much from over 100 of the most gifted presenters in the state and nation, experience healing sessions, enjoy the spirited Cultural Diversity Bash and eat and dance to your hearts content at our famous outdoor BBQ, all set in a retreat-like setting within the lovely Catskill Mountains?

But each year, it's gotten harder and harder for us to extend this life-changing experience to the next group of emerging recovery champions and leaders, and we find ourselves no longer able to subsidize the scholarships as we have for decades.

Your tax deductible donation of $399 will cover the full cost of registration, lodging, all programs and sessions and meals. Of course, we greatly appreciate whatever you can give to help bring hope and healing to those who could never attend otherwise. Please read the heartfelt testimonials below!

The NYAPRS Conference has meant everything towards my recovery. I finally feel like I am a part of a community and know that I can live a fulfilling and active life. I owe all of this to being given the opportunity to attend the Annual Conference thanks to the scholarship.

This is the first conference that I have ever been to that is largely represented by individuals who proudly state that they have "lived experience". I saw each and every person see their own specific recovery in their own eyes. The NYAPRS Annual Conference normalizes, allowing all to come together to learn, collaborate, communicate, socialize, support and to most of all have fun with one another.

Time and again, I've seen how transformative this Conference is and how it jumpstarts and recovery of so many of our members. They come back looking like new people...with so much more energy and resolve to take hold of their recoveries and their lives.

The NYAPRS Annual Conference is one of the most extraordinary events in the nation. I'm always struck by how many of the workshop presenters typically keynote at other such events. The heart of the experience comes from the hundreds of consumers who are clearly so grateful for the spirit that celebrates hope and recovery.
