I’m two seats down from you laughing out loud at the local movie theater. I’m in your early morning yoga class. Everyday. I’m in recovery. People in recovery from addiction are more like you than you think. Stop the stigma.
Recovery Happens. It actually does. More often than some think. It can happen for you or your loved one. We hope you will get some direction, questions answered, and resources to help you better start the process of addiction treatment and recovery supports.
Whether you’re a person struggling or a person struggling with how to help someone suffering, this website intends to provide you with hope and to demonstrate that people recover, families are restored, and communities get healthy.
When you’re ready to say “I’M IN” we’re here.

We’ll help.
