NORTON, Kan. — During National Recovery Month in September, people living in sobriety will share personal recovery journeys to inspire others impacted by addiction through the Voices of Hope project.

Produced by addiction treatment provider Valley Hope, Voices of Hope leverages the personal stories of those living in recovery to help educate communities about the disease of addiction, effective treatment and the power of recovery. The project also celebrates the millions of Americans living in recovery, while aiming to reduce the stigma of addiction, a deadly perception preventing millions of people from seeking treatment.

“Through the Voices of Hope project, people are sharing how healing and recovery from addiction is possible,” Dan McCormick, Valley Hope CEO and president, said. “Only ten percent of people who need addiction treatment actually receive it and by shining a light on the potential of recovery, together we can eliminate stigma and help more individuals, families and communities find healing.”

Visit the Voices of Hope project at valleyhope.org/recovery/recovery-stories/ throughout September and beyond to explore recovery stories, addiction information and treatment resources. Explore Valley Hope’s Beyond the Valley blog at valleyhope.org/blog for extensive resources and information for loved ones, families and the recovery community.
