About Turn Up For Recovery:
Turn up for Recovery is a charitable movement to raise awareness of abstinence-based recovery, tackle the stigma of addiction and make treatment affordable for people struggling with alcohol and drug addiction . The idea for Turn up for Recovery (TUFR) came to founder, Melia Clapton, while she was walking her dog. She wanted to challenge the stigma of addiction and alcoholism and raise awareness of the power of abstinence-based healing. It’s a subject close to his heart, having supported his family members through their recovery. His vision is of an inclusive community of artists, music lovers, and people affected by addiction who come together to have a good time, talk about recovery, and raise money so others get the help they need. at the Crossroads Center Antigua. Melia announced the move in September 2019 during Eric Clapton’s Crossroads Guitar Festival. It has grown since then.
