Vermont stories of addiction and recovery
Those who have experienced substance use disorder, either personally or with a family member or friend, are not somehow “different.”
They are just like you, your family, your circle of friends, your colleagues and your neighbors.
They have stories to share about their experiences and their recovery. And these are stories that are so incredibly important because they give a face and a voice to people who might otherwise be nothing more than numbers and statistics.
And by listening to their stories, we can better understand them and each other—and end addiction stigma here in Vermont.
