Episode 11 Features Performances from Chris Stainton, Beth Nielsen Chapman and Sheila E!
Turn up for Recovery is a charitable movement raising awareness of abstinence-based recovery, tackling the stigma of addiction and helping make treatment affordable to people struggling with alcohol and drug addiction. The idea for Turn up for Recovery (TUFR) came to founder, Melia Clapton, while walking her dog. She wanted to tackle the stigma around addiction and alcoholism and raise awareness about the power of abstinence based recovery. It’s a topic very close to her heart, having supported family members throughout their recovery. Her vision is for an inclusive community of artists, music lovers and those affected by addiction coming together to have a good time, talk about recovery and raise money for others to get the help that they need. Melia Clapton announced the movement during Eric Clapton’s 2019 Crossroads Guitar Festival.
The Turn Up From Home concert series was launched by TUFR in response to the Coronavirus Pandemic. New episodes of Turn Up From Home are posted at www.youtube.com/turnupforrecovery. Previous episodes are also archived on the channel for later viewing.
