Actor Rob Lowe spoke from the heart at the Artists on Recovery Fundraiser, a charity event to benefit Austin Recovery, an affordable drug and alcohol treatment center.

The ‘Parks and Recreation’ star knows firsthand the value of sobriety. As the keynote speaker for the event, he talked about how sobriety has impacted his life for the better.

The $800,000 that was raised at the luncheon will go towards the construction of Austin Recovery’s newest project: Family House. The new building will allow mothers to keep their families together, by bringing their children with them into residential treatment.

Family House will be the first facility of its kind. Many addict mothers lose their children, but with this new 21,000 square foot facility, they have the chance to work through their addiction and heal alongside their children in an atmosphere of sobriety. Family House will boast a play area, family style dining hall and group counseling. Mothers aren’t the only ones who will receive treatment. They will also offer special therapy for the children.

Jonathan Ross, the CEO of Austin Recovery said about the event, “This inspiring fundraiser and Rob Lowe’s speech hit a cord with many of our attendees today. Many either have battled their own struggle or have had a loved one fall into the hardships of addiction; they know all too well the harmful toll drug and alcohol addiction can take on a family.”
