We need your help!
We’re putting out a call for personal stories on the disease of addiction. We will be compiling the stories of Alaskan residents into a powerful video that will empower and educate others struggling with the same disease.
Deeply entrenched social stigma has kept recovery voices silent and faces hidden for decades. The vacuum has been filled with sensational mass media-depictions of people with addiction that perpetuate a fascination with the dysfunctional side of what is a preventable and treatable health condition.
There is a passionate new recovery movement gaining momentum around the country. A movement designed to turn the 23 million Americans living in long-term recovery from addiction to alcohol and other drugs into a powerful vehicle for public and political change.
It’s time to raise your voice and be heard. You are NOT your addiction.
The National Council on Alcoholism and Drug Dependence would like to hear your story. If you or a loved one has struggled with this hidden disease, we would love for you to share your story. By compiling the stories of Alaskan residents, via video and written word, we can empower others who struggle in the shadows, enlighten public opinion, and shift problematic policy toward a lasting solution.
If you are interested in participating or would like more information, contact Liz Weber at email@example.com or 907.463.3755, ext 227.
