Aerosmith Collaborator Honored For Recovery Song

(Sub) Aerosmith Collaborator Richie Supa was recognized for his work on behalf of people in recovery from substance abuse when he received the 2009 PRISM Award for Music Recording for his song, "In the Rooms."

The PRISM Awards, which are produced by the Entertainment Industries Council, Inc. (EIC) in collaboration with the Substance Abuse and Mental Health Services Administration (SAMHSA) and FX, honor actors, movies, music, media and television's top shows that accurately depict and bring attention to substance abuse and mental health issues. The Acting Surgeon General, Rear Admiral Steven K. Galson, participated in the 2009 PRISM Awards ceremony, which was held April 23 at the Beverly Hills Hotel.

During the event, Supa gave a live performance of "In the Rooms" for the audience. He shared this year's PRISM Award for Music Recording with Selfish Steam for the song, "Lost in Recovery."

Supa is best known as a former member of Aerosmith, as well as for writing numerous award-winning songs for well-known artists throughout the music industry. He wrote, produced and recorded the song "In the Rooms" for InTheRooms.com, a rapidly growing social networking website designed specifically for individuals in recovery, people who are seeking recovery, and for the family, friends and allies supporting their loved ones.

Since its launch in October 2008, InTheRooms.com has registered more than 25,000 members who collectively have more than 85,000 years of total recovery time, a figure that is constantly increasing.

"All of us associated with InTheRooms.com are extremely pleased and proud that Richie has been recognized by the entertainment industry for his tremendous efforts on behalf of people in recovery, and for this terrific song," said Ron Tannebaum, CEO and co-founder of InTheRooms.com. "We know that Richie will continue to show people through his music that treatment is available and that recovery is within your reach - and through our social networking community, you are definitely not alone."

Honorees for the PRISM Awards are selected by an 80-person committee of entertainment industry professionals and technical experts from the fields of medicine, mental health and addiction.

Other PRISM Award winners for 2009 include Anne Hathaway, William Shatner, Benjamin Bratt, Chandra Wilson and Dana Delany.
