Welcome and join us in our statewide RecoveryNC Campaign to engage and empower North Carolina residents who are in treatment or recovery from addiction. People in recovery, people seeking recovery, families, friends, advocates, and all with an interest in this critical public health issue are invited to take part. Together we can raise awareness, share experiences, and give hope to those still suffering from this deadly disease.
Everyone knows someone who is struggling with a drug or alcohol problem. By taking a moment to register with your name and the county you live in, you can make a huge difference in the lives of those who seek to sustain recovery from addiction.
The National Institute on Drug Abuse (NIDA) estimates the total cost of substance abuse in the United States at more than $484 billion per year, yet the power of recovery is priceless.
Share your story…
For every person who suffers from an addiction to alcohol or drugs, 4 other people’s lives are consistently altered. While many websites post stories of people who have achieved recovery, we are interested in hearing those other voices in addition to the voices of persons in recovery. So, we encourage anyone who desires to tell a story from their perspective (a loved one – spouse, child, mother, father, sister, brother, cousin, etc. – best friend, advocate, provider of any services that assist persons on their roads to recovery as well as those who are in recovery from addiction) to select the template that you feel most comfortable using, or create your own unique story. Not all stories have a happy ending, but more do end happily than the American public realizes. Your story will go a long way toward putting a human face on the disease of addiction, focusing on recovery and, most of all, reducing the stigma that so paralyzes people who suffer from an addictive disorder.
You can return your story by email to firstname.lastname@example.org, fax at (919) 990-9518 or mail Recovery NC, 1121 Situs Court – Suite 320, Raleigh, NC 27606.
