Over 23 million Americans are in recovery from addiction to alcohol & other drugs
America Honors Recovery 2016
America Honors Recovery is Faces & Voices of Recovery signature event. It is the largest and most prestigious gathering of nonpartisan, public and private sector leaders in the nation who convene to network while celebrating the achievements of the Recovery community.
We understand recovery as our process of freeing ourselves from substances. But what’s the actual definition of “recovery?” The answers I found in the dictionary opened my eyes to what recovery really means to me.
Abstinence based Recovery isn’t something you just mark off a list with a big check mark— it’s a state of mind. It is with you all the time, which can be a blessing in disguise, because when you engage with the world while in recovery, you can do so with more awareness than you had before.
