is a non-profit organization composed of dedicated young adults who are now living in recovery and abstinent from all drugs and alcohol.

Our Mission

We provide a safe and reliable program to heighten awareness, hope, and resources for our local communities. We aim to end the stigma of the disease of addiction by sharing our stories with middle and high school students, parents and communities. As

volunteers, we speak openly about our struggles with addiction and how we overcame them.

WE ARE A SERVICE-BASED VOLUNTEER PROGRAM.

Originating in Bergen County, NJ and rapidly expanding throughout the Northeast, we offer awareness services to schools and communities.

WE ARE PEOPLE IN RECOVERY.

Our recovery members are abstinent from all mind-altering drugs, including alcohol. They are responsible, local young adults living in the community, rebuilding their lives and actively living a life of recovery.

OUR PARENT PROGRAM

helps change perceptions. Our town and school based events for parents/adults is intended to help them navigate the addiction landscape. These events typically consist of two Recovery Members and a bereaved parent sharing their personal stories of loss. These events bring together real life voices to change the perception of substance abuse and addiction.

OUR PARTICIPANTS SPEAK FROM THEIR HEARTS.

As an act of love and caring, our volunteers do not expect anything other than the gratitude that comes from helping others. It is their hope that
