We provide a safe and reliable program to heighten awareness, hope, and resources for our local communities. We aim to end the stigma of addiction and Substance Use Disorder by sharing our stories with middle and high school students, parents, and communities.
Our recovery members are abstinent from all mind-altering drugs, including alcohol. They are responsible local young adults living in the community, building their lives, and actively living a life of recovery. They volunteer their time to speak openly about their feelings and issues during developmental preteen and teen years. The share about their struggles with addiction and how they overcame them. They also speak about the importance of asking for help and opting for better choices. Our services extend to 40 - 50 schools around the Northern New Jersey area.
Our organization is two-fold in speaking to the public. Parents and family members who have lost loved ones to addiction-related deaths are vital to the organization's mission in talking openly about addiction. Real-life local voices sharing their stories and experiences help to change the perception of substance abuse and addiction.
