Road to Recovery

Posted by T Rex on February 9, 2008


Last week Trey Anastasio spent 3 hours discussing his addiction and his journey to recovery with a group of people in New York with a program called Road Recovery a non-profit organization devoted to educating young adults about the benefits of living sober.

In my ten years of seeing Phish and seeing first hand the results of his addiction in his playing and appearance this was so great to read. This is just another example that good people can recover from the horrible but treatable disease of addiction. With the path that Trey is on and when the time is right the magic that we all fell in love with can happen again in a new and healthy way…….

“Road Recovery is a beacon of light in a dark and confusing world. Addiction is so tricky and insidious and community is the cure. Road Recovery is all about community, a great organization with amazing programs. I’m so happy to be sober and grateful to be in the company of people getting the point early!” – Trey Anastasio, singer, songwriter, Phish

“Like the fluency of his signature jams, Trey Anastasio led Road Recovery Master Class participants through a 3 hour journey seamlessly weaving an interactive discussion of personnel accounts of his childhood, the inner creative evolution of Phish, life on the road, of music’s power to unite people, fames fleeting lining, and humbly shared his shortcomings as a man, father, and celebrity. Trey concluded his discussion by unveiling a NEW untitled song that incorporated many of the sentiments expressed during his round circle Master Class.


Through mentoring, educational and live performance based-programs, ROAD RECOVERY’s goal is to help young people find their way towards a healthy future.

ROAD RECOVERY is comprised of entertainment industry professionals whose lives have been touched by addiction and other adversities and now wish to make a positive impact on the lives of others.
