Our See Your Self(ie) in Recovery campaign launched in September 2018 to celebrate Recovery Month. To continue spreading this message of hope, we'll be running the campaign again this year and we’ll need more selfies! Your stories & selfies have been a great source of strength, positivity & inspiration for the Faces & Voices community, so please keep sending them in so we can share them.

It’s been almost eight years since I started on my journey of recovery. I’ve since gotten married, had two children, went back to school, and now own my own business doing something that I love.

I am a woman in long term recovery. I celebrate my recovery each day in gratitude for the gifts I have received such as a return of joy, love, laughter and freedom. I continue to learn from others and to share my experience strength and hope with those who ask....
Just remember 3 things: Once you change who you surround yourself with you will change your life The sun always rises again. Life can get hard but you were made to get through this.
