The Alabama Institute for Recovery (A.I.R.) holds an annual conference around Alabama that has become one of the highlights of the year for many consumers in Alabama. Over 800 attendees from around the state gather for three days of education and fellowship. The conference features nationally known speakers and several workshops on consumer issues and interests. Social activities include a talent show and dance. Most of the attendees are consumers, and the conference often includes consumers from other states and international attendees.
The Alabama Institute for Recovery is planned and coordinated by individuals in recovery from mental illness. It is presented by the Office of Peer Programs of the Mental Health and Substance Abuse Services Division of the Alabama Department of Mental Health and Wings Across Alabama.
