Break Free NYFW Partners

About the Showcase

Break Free NYFW is a runway show with a cause. We are looking to lead the discussion on mental health and substance use disorder within the fashion industry. We have invited mental health and addiction activists to not only walk in this show as models, but to be featured designers showcasing their collections for the world to see.

A portion of the proceeds from this show will go towards 10,000 Beds, who provides scholarships to assist those seeking treatment for a substance use disorder to enter into a rehabilitation center.

About Our Sponsor

Recovery Centers of America was founded because we know the heartache, damage and pain addiction causes those suffering from substance use disorder as well as their family, friends and neighbors. We not only believe that addiction treatment should be affordable, accessible and evidence-based, we made those beliefs a reality. RCA has one mission: Help 1 million patients achieve a life of recovery by providing evidence-based alcohol and drug addiction treatment in your neighborhood.

To provide you with the very best in care, RCA has a world-class treatment team with extensive experience in treating substance use disorder and mental health disorders. Many of our staff members are in long-term recovery themselves, or have loved ones in recovery, and we all work together to address each patient’s individual needs so they can go on to live a life of recovery with new successes. RCA knows patients who are treated well get well sooner and stay well together, which is why we treat every patient and their loved ones with dignity, discretion, and respect. Addiction is an isolating disease, but recovery isn’t and with Recovery Centers of America you’ll have a support system, the education, the tools and the drive to live a life in successful recovery.

Whether you are calling for yourself or a loved one, the admissions team at Recovery Centers of America is here for you, 24 hours a day, 365 days a year. From questions on insurance and payment, transportation, programs, what to bring, and more, we have the answers for you. No question is off limits, and we work tirelessly to make this step in receiving help seamless and easy.

Our treatment focuses on healing and strengthening the mind, body and spirit, increasing the likelihood of achieving and maintaining recovery.

About the Charity

10,000 Beds
Since our beginning in 2014, the mission of 10,000 Beds has been to connect individuals without resources who are seeking help for a substance use disorder to vetted treatment programs through our scholarship program, and to change perceptions of addiction and recovery while supporting families and communities affected by the devastating disease of addiction.

Scholarships
Through our 10,000 Beds “One Bed.One Life.” scholarship program, we partner with extraordinary treatment programs throughout the United States that donate at least one addiction treatment scholarship annually for qualifying 10,000 Beds scholarship applicants who are without resources and actively seeking help for addiction. Our online application was created by a clinical team and provides an opportunity for the applicant to tell their story along with providing medical information. In the past seven years, we have awarded more than $10,000,000 in treatment scholarships.

Treatment Program Partners
We are honored to partner with numerous treatment programs around the country. Each of our extraordinary partners donates at least one scholarship every year. And each has been vetted by our team of advisors, board members, founder, or volunteer staff. We hold our partners to a very high standard. Not only do our treatment program partners already work day and night to help those battling addiction to get better, but they are philanthropic stars. This is one of the many things that make them exceptional. They are extraordinary, giving, generous people.

Lyre’s

Many years in the making, Lyre’s exquisite range of lovingly crafted non-alcoholic spirits was borne from a quest to make the impossible possible – giving the freedom to drink your drink, your way. Not just provide an alternative to those who don’t wish to imbibe alcohol, but ensure everyone can enjoy the mirth and merriment of a soiree or shindig.

With Lyre’s it’s up to you – replace some of the alcohol in your drink to make a low alcohol Lyre’s or make your classic favorites as a no-alcohol option simply by selecting from the many Lyre’s variants in our extensive range.

We craft our spirits to taste just like the classics they pay homage to. We source the finest all natural essences, extracts and distillates from the four corners of the globe.

At the risk of blowing our own bugle, this is quite simply the finest range of non-alcoholic classic spirits the world has ever seen.

Music at the After Party Will Be Provided by

Reprieve
Reprieve is a love-bomb exploding on the dancefloor. It’s a thumping club night without the thumping hangover. It’s four on the floor without the puke on it. It’s defying the misconception that no alcohol or drugs = no fun. Reprieve doesn’t push the drug and alcohol-free life, it just provides a space for people to play in it, whether just for a night or for a lifetime.

Hanzi
In 2018, 7 years of DJing had left Hanzi with an insatiable appetite for music and dance. Unfortunately, along with that career came an appetite for drugs and alcohol. After finally cleaning up his act, Hanzi felt his life as a DJ and the magic he created for those who danced with him, would evaporate. Determined to continue to spread love from the DJ booth, Hanzi created Reprieve. To spread joy, Love, and to prove to those suffering from addiction that they could live a life beyond their wildest dreams. Hanzi has performed at various NY clubs and bars including The Delancey, The Bell House, and Stephen Talkhouse. His clients include Adore Me, Publicis One, and Bank ABC among others. He’s open for The Band Called Fuse.
