The costs of addiction are well documented but the potential benefits of recovery are less well known. Similarly, substance use issues among both active duty military personnel and veterans are well known but their recovery experiences remain under-investigated. Further, little is known about whether and how addiction and recovery experiences differ between veterans and non veterans.

Faces & Voices first-ever nationwide survey of persons in recovery from addiction to alcohol and other drugs was conducted by Alexandre Laudet, PhD and documents dramatic improvements in all areas of life for people in recovery from addiction.
