Faces & Voices of Recovery developed the “Our Stories Have Power” training to give people in recovery and their family members messaging, or language, that they can use to talk about their recovery in non-stigmatizing terms. The recovery community is speaking out to educate friends, neighbors, policymakers, and the media about the reality of recovery so that others can get the help they need to recover.

This knowledge assists advocates to speak confidently to increase public understanding.
