Empowered story tellers are building the new recovery movement in South Carolina. We know that proven remedies exist, that recovery saves lives and families, and that appropriate responses to addiction saves society millions of dollars.
“By hiding our recovery, we have sustained the most harmful myth about addiction: that it is hopeless. And without the examples of recovering people, it’s easy for the public to continue thinking that people with addictions are moral degenerates and that those who are in recovery are the morally enlightened exceptions. We are the lucky ones—the ones who found recovery. And it is our responsibility to change the terms of the debate, for sake of those who still suffer.”
– Senator Harold Hughes
