Recovery Story


In today’s world, social media is a powerful tool to offset the sensational and demeaning mass media portrayals of people caught in addiction’s downward spiral. By sharing your story, you share the possibilities of a better life and the empowerment accompanying recovery.

Social Media

As a statewide peer recovery community organization, we want to publish as many faces and voices on our Facebook, Twitter, and Instagram accounts as possible. We believe effective messaging can help eliminate shame and secrecy, challenge deeply rooted social stigmas, and facilitate a positive conversation about addiction and recovery in our community.  Let’s help each other celebrate the milestones in our lives today!
