Uniting the music industry, artists, and fans to create inclusive sober spaces, encourage open conversations about addiction, and offer support for recovery.

Stand Together Foundation, Stand Together Music, and The Phoenix partner with Stagecoach

WHAT: 1 Million Strong, an impact initiative that seeks to transform the way people think about addiction and recovery, is hosting a wellness retreat experience at the 2023 Stagecoach Festival. The experience will include a sober-supportive wellness retreat experience for festivalgoers to hang out and enjoy alcohol-free cocktails, and meet up with people in recovery as well as allies.

The goal of the 1 Million Strong wellness retreat experience is to build a sober active community at concerts and music festivals — events where people in recovery often feel excluded or triggered — so all music fans can have an enjoyable experience and build a strong sense of community.

1 Million Strong is an initiative created through a partnership between Stand Together Foundation, which is committed to breaking the cycle of poverty in America by driving change from within communities, Stand Together Music, an organization that believes that the music industry is uniquely positioned to amplify and accelerate addiction recovery, and The Phoenix, which was founded on the mission to build a national sober active community that fuels resilience and harnesses the transformational power of connection so that together we rise, recover, and live.
