The Art of Recovery

This year as part of National Drug Court Month, NADCP is hosted an art contest for treatment court participants and alumni! Art is a powerful tool for conveying the emotions and ideas related to recovery that may be difficult to verbalize. The Art of Recovery submissions were displayed in a special gallery at RISE22 in Nashville, Tennessee.

Art of Recovery submissions were judged by RISE attendees in the following categories: photography, drawing/painting, and poetry. Prizes were also awarded for juvenile entries. Below are the winning submissions followed by a selection of all submissions.
