The Austin Recovery Speaker Series is an annual fundraising luncheon speaker series that began in the fall of 2011 with guest speaker Rob Lowe, taking place at Austin City Limits Live at The Moody Theater. Each gathering features a nationally acclaimed artist, entertainer, or speaker who shares his or her story of recovery. The goal of the series is to break the silence and stigma placed on addiction, while raising essential funds in support of Austin Recovery’s commitment to provide high-quality services to all in need.

This year's event will take place on Tuesday, May 5, 2015 and feature veteran actor of stage and screen, Jeffrey Tambor. Jeffrey took this year’s Golden Globe Award for Best Actor in a TV Series, Comedy, for his groundbreaking lead role in Transparent and the show itself followed suit, winning Best TV Series, Comedy. Jeffrey is also known for his unforgettable roles in series such as The Larry Sanders Show and Arrested Development.

Proceeds from this event support Austin Recovery, helping to continue saving lives, families, and futures of those touched by addiction. Since 1967 Austin Recovery has provided effective and compassionate drug and alcohol treatment through our detox services, residential treatment, and our innovative Family House program. In 2014, Austin Recovery opened The Center for Recovering Families-Austin, a unique, “small by design,” outpatient treatment program for individuals and families who battle addiction, alcoholism, and other mental health issues.
