"There is hope for recovery, one step and one day at at time." ~ Adam Hill, M.D.
We all have a role to play in decreasing mental health and addiction stigma. The power of vulnerability in sharing our stories and struggles leads to realizing there's strength in vulnerability. It's that strength that is a preventative to relapse and gets people what they need to survive, empowers, and fosters safety and security.
"Finding peace and grace...it's being okay with what you've done."
