The Hope Share: A Live Storytelling Event  (5437)

02/06/2013 9:00 PM - 02/06/2013 10:30 AM

85 million people in the U.S. have been affected by addiction and over 20 million are in long-term recovery. Imagine if each of them came forward to share a story of recovery or a message of support. The Hope Share, a new story-sharing portal created by
The Partnership at Drugfree.org, is designed to elevate stories of recovery and inspire others to speak out and help break the stigma and discrimination surrounding addiction. We’ve teamed up with proud partners of this project, InTheRooms.com and Faces &
Voices of Recovery, to host a unique upcoming virtual experience – The Hope Share: A Live Storytelling Event. Taking place on Wednesday, February 6th at 9 p.m. EST, participants are encouraged to share their video stories of hope using their webcam during
this 90-minute LIVE event to help inspire others and spark meaningful conversation around alcohol and other drug problems and addiction. Share your powerful story and help encourage families who are struggling with a young person’s addiction, and let them
know that there is hope, and that recovery is possible.
