Phoenix Houses of New York is a proud sponsor of the REEL Recovery Film Festival and we were pleased to also sponsor the opening night reception at Segafredo Zanetti Espresso Café in Manhattan on September 28th. Filmmakers and fans came out to support the launch of the Fest, which offers many days of provocative films, panel discussions and seminars merging the arts and recovery. The café was brimming with a festive crowd – great coffee, warm friends celebrating recovery at this kick-off event. We extend a big thank you to our friend Leonard Buschel & Writers In Treatment for bringing this unique film festival to New York City audiences to enjoy and learn more about addiction and recovery. The Festival moves onward to Vancouver, Los Angeles, and Fort Lauderdale after its Manhattan run.
Writers In Treatment is a non-profit organization with a mission to save lives through promoting treatment as the best first step solution for addiction, alcoholism and other self-destructive behaviors. Educational, prevention and awareness programs are also offered through their W.I.T. Author/Outreach Series.
