In April 2009, an innovative approach to Behavioral Health took place at Daley Park in Tempe Arizona. Approximately 350 people participated in the First Tournament of Champions Kickball Challenge. On that day, the barriers came down and the spirit of recovery flourished as Service Recipients, Families, and Service Providers joined together for a day of fun, food and friendship. This is healthy way for all of us to engage with one another and bring a humanistic approach to services. The collaboration between all the organizations can be a miracle in its self, but when it all comes down to it health and happiness is all our focus.
The event has been such a success we are having our 9th bi annual event Friday April 12, 2013. It is simply amazing seeing so many people from different walks of life join together and experience such fun, laughter and sharing.

NOPE Task Force lights up the night to remember those lost to and suffering from the disease of addiction. Many lives have been destroyed by substance abuse and the disease of addiction. Too often, this disease is perceived as deserved and shameful, leaving families to grieve in silence, or an addict struggling to recover alone. The NOPE Vigil strives to raise awareness and open the doors to recovery by eliminating the prejudice that follows the disease of addiction. The vigil is held in memory of the 30,000 United States citizens who die from accidental drug poisonings each year. Please join us for this special event honoring those whose lives have been lost, while giving hope to those who are still on the road to recovery.
THE ANONYMOUS PEOPLE is a feature documentary film about the over 23 million Americans living in long-term recovery from alcohol and other drug addiction. Deeply entrenched social stigma have kept recovery voices silent and faces hidden for decades. The vacuum has been filled with sensational mass media depictions of people with addiction that perpetuate a lurid fascination with the dysfunctional side of what is a preventable and treatable health condition. Just like women with breast cancer, or people with HIV/AIDS, a grass roots social justice movement is emerging. Courageous addiction recovery advocates have come out of the shadows and are organizing to end discrimination and move toward recovery-based solutions.
