Kristen Williams Haseotes

Kristen Williams-Haseotes of the Above The Noise Foundation joined GoLocal LIVE’s Chelsea Guay to discuss the upcoming Recovery Fest happening this coming Saturday, September 29, 2018, as well as the success that the Foundation has seen so far.

The first event of its kind, Recovery Fest is a drug and alcohol-free concert taking place at McCoy Stadium in Pawtucket, featuring several well-known musical acts including Macklemore, Fitz, and the Tantrums, local rock band PVRIS, and local legendary blues artist James Montgomery, and more.

"It will be a night where people come together with love, and it will be powerful," said Williams-Haseotes. 

Much of the discussion on GoLocal LIVE  - WATCH ABOVE -  was about the importance of ridding the stigma of addiction, the upcoming event and it's impact on the community as well as the overall mission of the
foundation.

The Above the Noise Foundation was created in direct response to the addiction crisis. Stigma, judgment, and isolation keep families and communities silent, and the disease and its treatment have been gravely misunderstood. Through the universal language of music, Above the Noise aims to unite communities, heal families, and shift America’s response to addiction from one of rejection to one of inclusion.
