The stigma attached to the widespread disease of addiction impacts us all, both consciously and unconsciously. It’s effects are woven into all levels of society and most people know someone who has battled this powerful mental illness. Those of us in the recovery community know that every time someone uses their voice to share their experience with recovery, they change the conversation about addiction. To use a quote from the original 12-Step recovery text:
“We are people who normally would not mix. But there exists among us a fellowship, a friendliness, and an understanding which is indescribably wonderful.”
To all of those who continue to speak out, thank you. Recovery is possible.
