Clean and Sober Nation, was founded by Susan Wagenaar. Her unwavering passion for recovery has kindled a flame in the hearts of thousands of others, spanning 50 states, and 12 nations.
CLEAN & SOBER NATION
This year, our group is committed to dispelling the stigma surrounding addiction, replacing old belief systems with understanding and a shared vision of hope, through a network of advocates, and diverse recovery voices that make up our community's support model.
We have witnessed how stigmatizing language and attitudes can be significant barriers to recovery and we aim to change that.
RECOVERY IS A FUNDAMENTAL RIGHT NOT A PRIVILEGE
Take a stand with us as we confront the 'Addiction Industrialized Complex,' a 39 billion dollar giant that preys on our nation's most vulnerable. Our mission is nothing short of overhauling the legal landscape, ensuring those responsible for exploitation, failed methods, and staggering relapse rates, face the full force of accountability. Together, we will make recovery an inalienable right, not a selective privilege.

Navigating People, Places, and Things in Early Recovery
The early days of recovery can be both exciting and challenging as you adjust to a new way of life. One of the biggest challenges many of us faced during this time was navigating the people, places, and things that might trigger cravings to use and lead to a possible setback in our recovery.
Our #1 sobriety tip to anyone new in recovery is to avoid spending time with people who may encourage you to drink or use drugs or socializing at risky places like bars, neighborhood parties (where the drinks are flowing) or casinos. Instead, surround yourself with supportive friends, peers, and family members who understand your commitment to sobriety, and remember you can always reach out to us for extra support at 530-501-5888.
Recovery is a journey and it's okay to ask for help when you need it. Stay strong, stay sober, and congratulations again on this important step in your life.
