For over 20 years, the Freedom Awards brings together a diverse audience of community members, businesses, elected officials, and non-profits to talk about addiction, celebrate recovery and support our treatment programs for individuals with substance use and co-occurring mental health disorders. This event recognizes community members who support and work toward ending the stigma of addiction.
This year’s recipient of the Samuel C. Wheeler Freedom Award is Representative Tawna Sanchez who has been a behavioral health champion in the legislature and helped to lead the Oregon’s recent historic investment to support those who struggle with addiction and mental health conditions. We will also honor Representative Rob Nosse and Senator Kate Lieber with the Spirit of Recovery Advocacy Award for their legislative leadership and work as behavioral health champions.
