Recovery is everywhere, and it is imperative that we speak out about the power of recovery. Each action, each shared story, and each face and voice that joins us, brings us closer to a society where recovery is acknowledged, supported, and celebrated.
Whether you’re a person in recovery, a family member of someone in recovery, or a recovery ally, we invite you to share your story here to demonstrate that recovery works for over 23 million Americans and offer hope to those who are still struggling, as well as their families and communities.
By standing together, by voicing our needs and desires, we make the process of recovery not just something we experience, but something we live, every day, for everyone.
Across the country, people in recovery are celebrating their successes and sharing them with others. However, these successes often go unnoticed by the broader population. Sharing and celebrating recovery stories connects community members with one another and empowers those who are still struggling to know they are not alone. It also helps us to eliminate the stigma and discrimination people in recovery often face and educate the public that recovery is possible.

Faces & Voices of Recovery has partnered with Opioid Response Network (ORN) to collect, produce, and distribute stories of recovery in the form of a national recovery awareness campaign. This initiative aims to highlight the impact of recovery on diverse individuals, families, and communities to change the current narrative of degradation and despair into one of continuous hope, courage, and empowerment.
