Stories of Recovery

The stories and testimonials on this page reflect the experience, strength, and hope of many who have suffered from the disease of addiction. Everyone endures their own personal trials and tribulations during active addiction, just as everyone walks their own particular path towards recovery. While the experiences are distinct to each individual, there are shared commonalities amongst anyone who has been touched by the hand of addiction. By sharing with one another, we help each other solidify a more healthy way of living.

We welcome you to share your story, insights or expressions of appreciation regarding what recovery from addiction means to you.  You may choose to remain anonymous by including only your first name or no name at all.
