Remembering Addiction Professionals on Wednesday Sept 20th

With overdose rates reaching the highest numbers on record in the past couple of years, we need to remember to pause on Wednesday, September 20, 2023, to celebrate vital players of the health system and continuum of care: addiction professionals.

In the realm of addiction recovery, one often-overlooked group of individuals plays a pivotal role in transforming lives and instilling hope: Peer Recovery Specialists. These unsung heroes bring a unique and invaluable perspective to the field, offering a guiding light for those on their journey to sobriety.

Peer Recovery Specialists are individuals who have faced and conquered addiction themselves. Their personal experiences provide a profound connection with those currently battling substance abuse issues. This shared experience fosters empathy, understanding, and trust, making it easier for those seeking recovery to open up and share their challenges.

One of the most significant advantages of Peer Recovery Specialists is their ability to provide non-judgmental support. They understand the complexities of addiction and recovery, recognizing that it is not a moral failing but a complex health issue. This empathetic approach helps individuals feel safe, valued, and understood.

Voices of Hope is a Peer run organization. Almost every staff member is a person in recovery. These incredible individuals use their personal experiences to connect, support, and empower those on their recovery journey. We are so grateful to you all for your hard work and dedication.

Today, we shine a spotlight on the incredible Addiction Professionals who dedicate their lives to helping others find the path to recovery. Their unwavering support, empathy, and expertise make a profound impact on individuals and communities. They provide hope, healing, and a guiding hand for those battling addiction.

Let’s take a moment to express our heartfelt gratitude for these unsung heroes and their commitment to making the world a better place, one recovery at a time.
