      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.
