North Dakota First Lady Kathryn Burgum today announced that the fourth annual Recovery Reinvented, an event dedicated to eliminating the shame and stigma of the disease of addiction and empowering communities to support recovery, will be held Sept. 29 in Grand Forks.

This will be the first time the event is in Grand Forks, having previously been hosted in Bismarck twice and once in Fargo. The first lady made the announcement during today’s 1 Million Cups event in Fargo, where the theme was behavioral health.

“We are continually focused on reshaping Recovery Reinvented to deliver an impactful experience to everyone who is passionate about ending the stigma of addiction and creating a culture that fully embraces recovery,” First Lady Burgum said. “Bringing this event to the community of Grand Forks is exciting because of the incredible energy and passion they have shown in finding solutions to address the challenges surrounding addiction.”

Gov. Doug Burgum and the first lady invite the general public, Native American communities, business and community leaders, behavioral health providers, university and college representatives, health care providers and administrators, addiction recovery advocates, faith-based communities, first responders, law enforcement, families and more to join them for Recovery Reinvented.

Registration will open at a later date and event information will be available at with additional updates being shared by the Governor and First Lady’s social media on Facebook @GovernorDougBurgum and @FirstLadyND and Twitter @DougBurgum and @FirstLadyND.
