One of the best ways to help break the stigma of addiction is to share with others about our struggles and how we got clean and sober.
Drug addiction and alcoholism is a disease that affects the mind and body and it deserves to be taken seriously. National Recovery Month helps continue that awareness and understanding of the disease so that others know that there is nothing to be ashamed of and recovery is a reality.
