Introduction of RIE to others

Here is a letter that was sent out to treatment and recovery agencies to invite them to the 1st annual Sober Party next year, November 3, 2018. Yeahhhhhh!!!!

Below you will see a letter I have written to Recovery agencies and Treatment Centers.  I am hoping they will reciprocate by spreading the word about the Sober Party and what RIE is all about.

December 12, 2017
Dear Recovery Community,
Hi, my name is Stephani Register and I am the Founder and owner of a business called “11/1993-Recovery is Essential”(RIE). RIE is based on my journey living a Clean Sober Life. Moreover, maintaining sobriety through the 12-Step program. In November 1993, I hit the hardest point in my life when I woke up out of a crack coma to find out I had done something horrible and that my children had ran away. This terrified me and caused me to begin to search for something that would help me stop using. My bottom had begun. When I found out my children had ran away that night, I was devastated and felt such a pang of guilt and shame I did not want to live for myself. I hid in my apartment for three months before anyone realized that maybe I had killed myself. I felt so much pain from what I have done that I could not even look at myself for a while and I did not want to see my children either. It took me a long time to forgive myself and still now today it hurts and I still cry when I write or tell the story of what happened that cold November night in 1993.
Fast forward to the present and still living a Clean and Sober life due to my journey and the 12-step program; I will be celebrating 25 years on Saturday November 3, 2018. This seed was planted back then when I first got clean; however, I needed to live this life in order to develop a company that has been birthed in my soul. Recovery Is Essential will host its first annual RIE Sober Birthday Party for all those who are celebrating clean time. I am reaching out to your organization so that you can save the date- Saturday, November 3, 2018 from 7pm to 12am; the place is going to be announced later. This will be the Big Event for us who need a clean environment to celebrate without the negative influences of drugs and alcohol.
RIE is in the business of sailing t-shirts, hats, cups and other related items with the logo imprint on each to offset the cost for the event. If you are interested in purchasing an RIE item, do not hesitate to go on line to to order your items they can be found there. You can also send your clientele to participate in our online RIE group and on our RIE page on Facebook. Just type in Recovery is Essential and request to be added as a member and we will oblige.
Thank you for letting me share and if you have any question, do not hesitate to contact me at 609-532-9906 or you can messenger Recovery is Essential on Facebook and we can communicate from there. Again thank you.
Stephani Register, Founder-RIE

RIE Letterhead-01

This is going to be epic. So please get ready for this time next year 2018 we will be celebrating all those who have clean years.  And what a party this will be.


Let’s talk about the Steps


I am going to talk about the 12-steps in my next few posts… I am going to give you my perspective of what the steps are for and how I used them to help me. These Steps kept me going and they helped “NOT” to relapse.

Thank you for letting me share. So with all that, I may not get all the lingo right, becauses I was in and outof the rooms. But please bear with me…


Today as I was going through my page and minding my own business, while reading the other Recovery posts, I was overwhelmed with joy. Let me tell you why?

It only goes to show you that when some of us need help, we will reach out to get it. We will reach far too if it is a matter of life and death. We will Reach!!! This gave me hope as our society is so used to us not trying for the “reach” of support and help. Even with all the help out there, we still have too many people dying from these addictions. Therefore, the reach seems invalid!

This is why Recovery is Essential is important… 

Thanks for letting me share…

Recovery Is Essential Soft Launch-a SUCCESS!!!

On Saturday November 4, 2017 at Classic Books downtown Trenton, NJ, 11/93-Recovery is Essential (RIE) had its soft introduction to the world.  Friends and Family showed up and we had a blast… Everyone that came out was so excited about this adventure that we are about to take off.20171104_140031.jpg

One person stated ” I got four years CLEAN and have been waiting for a positive project like this”  “How can I help”? Soon after, many were asking how can we be a part of this movement?

Here is how this happened, I was getting ready for work one morning and I was praying and I asked the ‘Holy Spirit’ to give me something that was a purpose for RIE, and the Spirit laid on my heart to ask my 3 girls (my daughters, who got me clean in the 1st place) to give me a charity that they were interested in and we will donate proceeds to that particular charity. Well, that was an overwhelming experience just asking them to participate, because they were really thinking the same thing and thought that this was an awesome idea. So with all that, for every purchase of a t-shirt, tote, cup and other RIE items for sale a portion of the proceeds will go towards these charities:

  • Ronald McDonald House/Westminster Dancing Divas/R-H Club and Planned ParentHood. (Charities are subject to change) 

A donation will be made to the mentioned charities and will be sent soon after the “Annual Recovery is Essential Sober Party” scheduled for Saturday, November 3, 2018!! (can’t wait to see you all there). Therefore, you all are participating in the welfare of these charities and we are so appreciative of your help.

In addition, for every self-help book and when you mention “Recovery is Essential”, at Classics books 30% of the book sales will also go towards the efforts of RIE.  This is so exciting!!!


Living a Clean and Sober life is cool and that is what we are promoting.  We are hoping that through everything we do with RIE, we will promote nothing but living a clean and sober life.  Yes, we know that is not that easy but we have proven expereinces to show that it can be done.  Come and be a part of our memberhsip.


Enjoy the pictures of the Soft Launch.  Can’t wait to show you more!!!
