Jeniene C., Montgomery County, PA

"I was an educated, professional woman who was not ignorant to the damage and devastation that drug use leaves in its wake. All I can honestly say is that the pain in my heart was a weight so much stronger than I thought I could carry, and I was willing do whatever it took to make it stop."

Thomas L., Bucks County, PA

"I was never one to believe in medication to help me get off drugs since I thought it was a sign of weakness. I learned that everyone's journey is different, and this worked for me."

Brooke F., Bucks County, PA

"While the common opioid epidemic narrative is one of it all starting with prescribed use, a story of people being duped by big pharma and irresponsible doctors, that was not my opioid experience, nor the experience of most people I know."

Patrick M., Delaware County, PA

"Recovery for me isn’t about what we give up or what we abstain from.  It’s about everything we gain.  It’s about everything that we recover and everything that we build for ourselves."

Carla S., Bucks County, PA

"I want to keep moving forward to break the stigma so that people know addiction is not a moral failure and everybody deserves a chance at life."

Taylor W., Ventura, California

"I certainly have a long way to go and am definitely not cocky when it comes to my sobriety; I know that this disease is cunning and baffling and will take you out any chance it gets, but I use that to motivate and push me in my sobriety."

Erna B., Cumberland County, PA

"My life has significantly changed for the best. I’m not exactly where I want to be at all. I have so much more work to do, but I am exactly where I should be."
