Stand Up For Recovery!

If you ever feel alone in your recovery journey, please know that there are an estimated 23 million people in long-term recovery in the United States alone! That is absolutely astounding!

MANY FACES 1 VOICE is a multi-faceted campaign to mobilize people in recovery, family members, friends and allies to advance the addiction recovery advocacy movement. We are moms and dads, sons and daughters, brothers and sisters – all bringing the power and proof of recovery to our communities. Together we will change public perception, and ultimately the public response to the addiction crisis…FOREVER.

Will you join us?

On March 1st, the Hazelden Betty Ford Foundation, a founding partner of the ManyFaces1Voice call-to-action campaign, will host a free online stream of The Anonymous People via the Hazelden Social Community. (You must join the online community to watch, but joining is free).

On that day, people from all over the world will watch The Anonymous People, which will be accessible for online streaming for 24 hours (12AM to 11:59PM EST on 3/1/14). As an added bonus, the film’s director, Greg Williams, and other key subjects from the film, including Hazelden’s William Cope Moyers, will have a dialogue about recovery advocacy during a live chat that begins at 5 p.m. EST. Click the play button to watch the trailer.

RECOVERY IS BIG. 23 MILLION BIG — and that’s just in the United States! The story of a new recovery advocacy movement is also growing; more than 55,000 have attended community screenings and events. But we’re a long way from reaching the global masses who are affected by addiction. Please visit ManyFaces1Voice.org for more information about the movement.

    This is amazing! I might not be an American, but the fact that people are standing up, showing their strength and courage, and their vulnerability is definitely something that needs be applauded and supported. Please read this and reblog, post and share!!

    We are NOT alone!! Join in, share your voice, share your story, be of service!!

    The disease of addiction/alcoholism doesn’t care what color you are, your sexual preference, if your rich or poor. All it cares about is killing you slowly.

    There is a solution! Stand up!! Spread the word!! There is a way out!! This is a disease!
