Adán Carriaga Leader in Recovery Award
We have 2 winners this year! Congratulations Bernie Lieving and Dr. Marcello Maviglia! Two leaders who strive to help reduce stigma, educate people about addiction, help people find access to treatment, and provide education and resources for harm reduction.
Albuquerque Celebrates Recovery (ACR) was inspired by Adán Carriaga. Adán was a man with a mission and his mission was to ensure that everyone seeking recovery had love and support when they decide to get help. Sadly, Adán passed away in May 2021 so we are carrying on his mission to celebrate the millions of people in recovery. Every year, we award a person with the Adán Carriaga Leader in Recovery Award.
