Each forum is co-sponsored by local recovery community organizations to address the obstacles and barriers that prevent or inhibit Americans from achieving long-term recovery from addiction. We would like to hear about your experiences - and those of your friends, neighbors, colleagues, and constituents - with discriminatory policies, negative attitudes, and other barriers to sustained recovery. We also encourage people to speak out about policies and programs that have had a positive impact on sustained recovery.
