Recovery from addiction is a major undertaking and a gift you give yourself, your family, and your community. While recovery can be a long and arduous process, it is so gratifying when you can confidently say your addiction is well-managed and no longer in control of your life. Share addiction stories to inspire others to take their first steps toward recovery.
