Ben Chin
"Recovery taught me how to think differently, live differently, make better decisions."
Glenn Williams
"I have a sense of meaning that I wouldn't have had, had I not embraced recovery."
Glenn Williams
"I have this past where I could have ended up dead or in jail, and now I've really turned my life around."
Hannah Resseger
"It was either get help or die. I chose to live, get help, and try a different way."
Mike Fildes
"I know how to live through that stuff man, I know how to be okay with myself, and I didn't know how to do that before."
Vinnie Golden
"It's harder for me to identify with someone that's a little bit older, instead I've got a bunch of kids around my age and we're all helping each other."
Vinnie Golden
"It's not too early, it's never too early to get into recovery."
Kristina Fenn
"I found some mutual support groups that helped me connect with other young people in recovery and helped me understand what was going on in me."
