      YOUR VOICE MATTERS

      Over 45 million Americans are impacted by addiction. And we all have a story to tell. Whether you’re a person in long-term recovery, a family member or friend, someone who’s struggling with addiction, or an ally, your story can make an impact. And it’s time for your voice to be heard.

      Silence is deadly. Shame can keep us from admitting how dire the situation is. But there’s no shame in reaching out, and there’s no shame in raising our voices. From other people with substance use disorder, to parents and friends, to policy makers and law enforcement — we all have something to say about addiction.

      I’m a person living in recovery who knows how empowering it is to share my story. Now, I’ve made it my life’s purpose to inspire others to get involved and make their voices heard. When you stand up for recovery, you’ll be joining millions of others in breaking the silence and changing the way we talk about addiction. Stand up, raise your voice and tell your story. Our words can support, inspire, and create meaningful change at a critical time.

      ACTION CENTER

      Change happens from the ground up. Not from the top down. Let’s work together to build communities and constituencies of consequence by empowering people to become advocates for what’s best in their own backyard. Policy and decision makers respond to mobilized communities. The time to stand up for recovery is now.

      I'm not young & beautiful so this won't get tons of attention, but just trying to show what 7 months sobriety does for a nearly 50 year old. I think I look a lot better now. Going sober is so worth it. #RecoveryPosse
