It’s Recovery Month – Give Hope to Others

Share Your StoryThis month we’re celebrating the millions of Americans in recovery from drugs and alcohol – and their families and loved ones.

September is Recovery Month, a national observance to increase awareness and understanding of substance use disorders.

This year’s theme, “Join the Voices for Recovery: Visible, Vocal, Valuable” highlights the value of peer support and helping others. Research shows that by sharing their experiences, people in recovery bring hope to others, and promote a sense of belonging.

We here at Partnership for Drug-Free Kids couldn’t agree more. We believe that stories unite those who have been touched by addiction and offer hope to others. That’s why we’ve created Stories of Hope, a vibrant community of people in recovery – like Sofia and Justin and Jodi and Nathan and those with an anniversary today and many, many others – who have courageously shared their personal struggles with drugs and alcohol, as well as their triumphs in recovery.

We currently have 1,519 Stories of Hope – and would love to have your story added.

Do you have a recovery story to share? We invite you to share it now and become part of our online recovery community. Be an inspiration. Your story could change someone else’s.
