LifeRing and Facing Addiction: Your Recovery Story Is Needed!

 

Hey LifeRingers!

Who among you would like to share your secular recovery story?

Facing Addiction is partnering with us on a project/publication called “Multiple Pathways of Recovery” in which LifeRing, SMART Recovery, Women For Sobriety, and other mutual aid groups as well as other recovery resources will be featured. 

Each group is providing an individual’s brief (100 words or less) testimonial using their full name or first name and last initial along with their photo to put a real face on recovery.

Here are a couple of examples of what they’re looking for, taken from another organization’s submissions so far:

“I love that … focuses on recovery rather than addiction.”

“In every … meeting something extraordinary and unique happens: for 60-90 minutes, individuals – strangers – put their heads and hearts, their hopes and fears, and their courage together to create a living, breathing community…and leave forever changed.”

Your participation would mean the world to us – and to everyone out there who needs choice in recovery – so if you’d like to share your story, please e-mail Ewa C., our Project Coordinator working with Facing Addiction, at: ewa@lifering.org 

Your submissions are needed by the end of the month (June 2017); we’re really looking forward to hearing from you!

Many thanks and heartfelt gratitude to you all.
