Review the personal stories of people recovering from mental and/or substance use disorders.

These personal stories share strategies individuals have used to overcome obstacles and achieve success with their recovery efforts.

“I truly believe that nothing I have accomplished would have been possible if I was not a person in recovery.”
"I reached a turning point with humility, humbleness, and devotion."
"While in the act of my addiction, I told myself I was not hurting no one but myself—I was in denial."
"What I know is this. I had to find something beautiful in this life & hang on for all I was worth."
