A growing advocacy force
Faces & Voices of Recovery was founded in 2001 at a Summit in St. Paul, Minnesota, the culmination of more than two years of work to provide focus for a growing advocacy force among people in long-term recovery from addiction to alcohol and other drugs, their families, friends and allies. For too long those most affected by alcohol and other drug problems have been absent from the public policy debate.
Since then, the addiction recovery movement has exploded – in the US and around the globe.
Our mission at I Am Not Anonymous is to bring the SOLUTION into the conversation in hopes of helping the millions of people who remain untreated and help the world understand that addiction is not a moral failing. We all know what addiction looks like. Have you ever seen what recovery looks like? To set the record straight, the people who suffer from substance use disorder put their face and voice to their recovery journey. Truth is, recovery is possible and with recovery anything is possible.
Rarely has the world heard from those affected by a loved one’s substance use disorder. Now, The Affected take a courageous stand by putting their face and voice into the public eye to let the world know that we can all recover.
