People In Recovery

There are an estimated 23.5 million Americans living in recovery from addiction to alcohol and other drugs. People in recovery, their family members, and other allies are living proof that overcoming addiction is not only possible, but a reality that demands significant increased attention and support. Just like women with breast cancer, or people with HIV/AIDS, courageous addiction recovery advocates are starting to come out of the shadows to tell their true stories and organize various recovery supports in their communities to help others still struggling. There are many paths of recoveryPeople will choose their recovery pathway based on cultural values, socioeconomic status, psychological and behavioral needs, accessibility, and the nature of their substance use disorder.
