Writers in Treatment produces and presents culturally significant events dedicated to improving the lives of people in recovery. WIT strives to do this by promoting awareness, smashing stigma and promoting the idea “treatment works and recovery is possible.”  The Experience, Strength and Hope Awards honors a sober celebrity for writing an honest and heartfelt memoir about their life and work, including their journey from addiction to sobriety.  The event is held yearly in March at the Skirball Cultural Museum and is one of the most eagerly awaited recovery events of the year.

WIT offers free referrals for individuals suffering from alcoholism or addiction. We publish the weekly Addiction/ Recovery eBulletin and produce the national REEL Recovery Film Festival & Symposium.


The charity event is a celebration of the benefits of clean and sober living and the importance of humor in the recovery process.
