Testimonial: Hi, my name is James, I'm 26, and I'm 17 months clean and sober

When Susan asked for testimonials I was happy to supply one. What I really like about virtual recovery and our community is that other members encouraged me when I was 'new to sobriety' to view recovery as a positive experience, where shared hope, mutual support, and fellowship was on the menu. Our group is socially interactive. It feels great to laugh, smile, and connect with others who are on the same path as I am.


For me, it's vidal that I can connect with others, 24 hours a day, 7 days a week, as my schedule is very busy. I'm in my first year of college, and I plan to become a Social Worker. Today, I view recovery as a  lifestyle choice, worthy of embracing. For the first time, in a long time, I truly like myself again.

and Recovery


Researchers know more than ever about how drugs affect the brain and have found treatments that can help people recover from substance use challenges and lead productive lives. 


Addiction is characterized by drug-seeking behavior and use that is compulsive, and very difficut to control on willpower alone, despite repeated harmful consequences. 

Many people don't understand why or how other people become addicted to drugs?


They may mistakenly think that those who use drugs lack moral principles or willpower and that they could stop their drug use simply by choosing to. 


In reality, addiction is a complex condition, and quitting usually takes more than good intentions or a strong will.

Alcohol  and drugs change the brain in ways that make quitting hard, even for those who want to. 


The great news is help is available, and millions of people around the globe are living addiction free lifestyles, and so can you! (3).jpg
