Sharing Stories of Recovery

People in recovery are being given the chance to share their story on several new online forums. By doing so, recovering persons will be able to inspire others and give them the support they need.

Iamrecovery.com is a Web site created by the New York State Office of Alcoholism and Substance Abuse Services. It contains a database of stories that is searchable by drug, gender, age, and years in recovery.

The Second Road has also announced they will publish a story a day in April to promote Alcohol Awareness Month. Submissions are invited by email or on video.

We think this is a great idea, because the more stories that are shared, the more people can be reached. We’d also like to do something like this on brandywinecounseling.org. Would you like to see a BCI “story bank?” What kind of features do you want to see? Drop us a comment with your suggestions!

Great blog. Recovery stories are so inspirational and motivating to others. It lets others know that they are not alone, and more importantly that they too can succeed.
