7th Annual FOA Rally 4 Recovery

For six years in a row, the FOA Families of Addicts Rally 4 Recovery has been changing the conversation about addiction from problem to solution. Last year over 3,000 people attended and 72 community partners were present as a resource to anyone affected by addiction and entire families experiencing recovery together.

Our rally is planned by family members and is for anyone touched by addiction. 

The 7th Annual Rally 4 Recovery hosted by FOA Families of Addicts will be held on: 

August 30th from 2:00 pm to 6:00 pm at Courthouse Square in downtown Dayton.

Thanking our Co-sponsor, BANYAN TREATMENT CENTERS for making this possible. 

The purpose of the FOA Rally 4 Recovery is:

To unite the people and resources of the Miami Valley to:

  • Eliminate the stigma associated with addiction and mental health disorders

  • Educate about addiction & mental health disorders

  • Celebrate and show that recovery is possible and that it works!


Since 2/3 of American families are touched by addiction, this free event welcomes ANYONE to attend.

The event will include:

  • Over 50 resource tables with information on treatment, recovery and related support services (A numbered list will be published in the program for easy navigation)

  • Music by Rising Life Band, Speakers, Food Trucks, Raffle Drawing, Balloon Launch (Eco-friendly balloons, no strings or paper attached), TapSnap Photos, Hope and Memory Canvas signing and more
