Today we celebrate International Recovery Day – a day devoted to celebrating the millions of people in recovery, promoting global recovery efforts, and spreading hope to those with substance use disorders and their loved ones as Recovery is Possible!
Please take a few moments to check out the following vides produced by World Federation Against Drugs. The first features a compilation of interviews with global experts on recovery and their inspiring efforts and work in the field. The second highlights the story of our good friend and partner in prevention, Dave Closson, who also is the host to our Pathways to Prevention Podcast.
