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.

Addicts are not weak. We are not your political pawns. Those in recovery fight EVERY DAY to lift the shame & stigma of addiction so people feel they can reach out for help.
God DAMN these people. Think of how many suffering addicts won’t reach out for help because of this. https://twitter.com/ryanforrecovery/status/1320037179138011136

This is gross. It’s inhumane. Even more disgusting is the fact that the people who created it, the owners of Roland Advertising, are the board president and executive director of http://nextstep.life, an addiction treatment program in Cookeville, TN.
