Witnessing With Anonymity: Dispelling the Misconceptions That Silence the Voices of Recovery







Description:
Invited Panelists: Stephanie Abbott, Counselor: Addiction & Family, National Association for Children of Alcoholics; Johnny Allem, President, Johnson Institute; Shireda Prince, Representative, Faces and Voices of Recovery; and Bobby Coffey, Advocate for Recovery

Program Abstract: For many, the thought of speaking out and sharing a recovery experience with friends, coworkers, community leaders, civic groups, and policymakers is a daunting proposition. This program focuses on how people in recovery can provide testimonials and recount their successful recovery journey and still be respectful of the traditions of their mutual support groups. It also addresses the myths and misconceptions that keep silent the voices that could give others hope and the courage to recover.
