"There is not a home in the United States that is unaffected by addiction, and long-term recovery is the ultimate goal. By celebrating the benefits of recovery, and the real people who are achieving it, we can decrease the stigma surrounding this disease," said Jessica Nickel, executive director of the Addiction Policy Forum. "Everyday Recovery recognizes the millions of Americans who continue to find recovery and share stories of hope."
"For many of us, every day of recovery brings new joys and opportunities," said Patty McCarthy Metcalf, executive director of Faces & Voices of Recovery. "This campaign carries the message of hope in a very public way — one that will eliminate negative attitudes toward addiction and recovery."
