“One of my favorite achievements in the legislature was passing a bill to stop the stigma of addiction recovery and create a license plate for awareness,” Rep. Allen said in a Tweet
Rep. Allen highlighted the effort to bring the plates to the backs of cars on Sunday, marking the start of Mental Health Awareness Week.
The Georgia Council on Substance Abuse and Georgia Mental Health Consumer Network are behind the push for the plates, which will cost $80 in their first year.
Rep. Allen tweeted that the proceeds of the sales of the plates would go to the Council on Substance Abuse and the Mental Health Consumer Network “to fight stigma and support programs.”
The plates feature a “Georgia Recovers” logo to the left, and the slogan “Recovery is Real” underneath the plate number.
