Congressman Hal Rogers Beacon of Hope Award

The ongoing effort to combat drug addiction requires a multidisciplinary approach involving stakeholders from all aspects of society. Many leaders have emerged in this movement, and in 2018 the Rx Summit decided to annually recognize a change-maker tackling this epidemic. The inaugural award was presented to Congressman Hal Rogers of Kentucky.

Hope Ambassadors

Stories of Recovery and Inspiration for Hope

The work we do at Rx and Illicit Drug Summit through sessions, workshops, and networking is all centered around one goal: to create effective strategies for prevention, treatment, and recovery that will ultimately save lives. This is why we created the Hope Ambassadors program, to highlight stories of people in recovery, and those who have impacted the recovery journey of others. 

Through our dedication and collaboration at Rx and Illicit Drug Summit, our community has the power to create more stories of recovery and thus a stronger sense of hope. We look forward to continue sharing more recovery stories and inspiration for hope at Rx and Illicit Drug Summit 2024 in Atlanta.
