I am person in long term recovery, meaning I haven’t used alcohol or drugs in over 23 years. When I started on my recovery journey, there was no “recovery movement” and we did not talk about being in recovery. We were silent. Today, I am proud to be a part of the ever-growing recovery movement in our country.

On October 4th, tens of thousands of people representing organizations and families from the prevention, treatment, criminal justice, health and recovery communities across the country will UNITE to Face Addiction on the National Mall in Washington, DC.
We are coming together to end the silence and let policymakers, the media, our friends, families, co-workers, and neighbors know that addiction is preventable and treatable that people can and do recover when they get the help they need.
