August and September are Membership Drive Months
Reason #1 - Membership in Recovery International benefits you—you get updates and information and Weekly Wisdoms and the Reporter and access to phone meetings, events, and opportunities to meet others in the Recovery community.
Reason #2 - Membership shows you care about Recovery International as an organization, and you are being group-minded by supporting it. That means we can cover the costs of keeping meetings going, providing training, publishing our literature, and reaching out to others in need.
Reason #3 - Strong membership numbers are important to funders and granting agencies. If our membership numbers are low, they think their gifts are only helping out a few people and the grant might go to a larger organization. If our membership numbers are higher, it shows that lots of people support RI and benefit from our programs enough to want to belong.
If you are already a member—thank you! And ask the people at your next meeting if they are all members…this is a good time to join, for themselves and for the organization.
Basic membership is only $35 a year, and joining at higher levels helps cover costs for those who are on limited incomes and cannot pay—we don’t want to turn anyone away for inability to contribute.
Do something good for yourself and be group minded at the same time-- Here’s the link to join now:

Archives Donation to University of Illinois at Chicago Dr. Abraham Low Special Collection
In 1937 Dr. Abraham A. Low, a neuropsychiatrist with the Psychiatric Institute at the University of Illinois, worked with his patients to form the organization now known as Recovery International (RI) to help patients re-integrate into the community following hospitalization. He developed techniques of self-help to augment outpatient treatments by professionals. Among the records are nearly complete sets of newsletters and other publications (books, pamphlets, brochures, etc.), transcriptions of taped interviews with Abraham Low done not long before his death, unpublished manuscripts, correspondence of Low, his wife Mae Low and other key leaders, and more.
