This year’s gala will feature key-note speaker and remarkable story-teller, Tony Hoffman. Tony will speak to breaking down the various stigmas that those affected by addiction must over-come, even beyond sobriety. The greatest stigmas Tony faced were not so much in his active use but when he began to dream of something more for his life, something big, and without substances. The judicial system, employers, community members, and people on the internet have confronted Tony and judged him based on these stigmas. These are the same stigmas that made it hard for Tony’s parents to seek help or understand it was okay to have a child struggling with addiction. Tony has beaten the odds one day at a time and dedicated his life to bringing hope that recovery is possible and how critical it is to break down the stigmas and shift our thinking about addiction.
