We hope to shine light on the world of addiction.
Far too often addiction is hidden in the shadows and
goes without being talked about for fear of judgment or shame.
We are creating a space for addiction recovery to be
talked about, celebrated, encouraged and supported.
We Are One Recovery C.A.R.E.S.
Addiction often makes us feel like we are ALONE in our struggles. That is why we are creating a community where you can feel safe, accepted and acknowledged. Addiction does not discriminate and it affects every aspect of our community.
Join us in our efforts to raise public awareness of the realities of addiction and the massive impact it is having our community as a whole. Awareness allows us to be aware of the dangers of addiction and focus our efforts on prevention and support.
Our community has very diverse and valuable resources to assist you in your recovery. It is often difficult to navigate the recovery world and find available resources. We hope to bridge the gap between those who are suffering and the resources that are available.
Education can be one of the most empowering things you can do as a support for anyone struggling with addiction. Join us as we learn from leading industry professions and find resources for your ongoing recovery education.
