#MyPath2Recovery

 Right now we’re celebrating the many paths  to recovery which we, our staff, and our members have stepped into. Please help us to encourage those in and seeking recovery all over our country by sharing your story, and your path to recovery. The stories you share will appear on our social media and other platforms as part of our “My Path to Recovery” campaign. Thank you so much for helping us work towards a world where young people have the  resources they need to thrive in recovery from addiction to drugs and alcohol.

 Here’s how to help: Send us a video or a photo & quote. Whichever you chose, it can be submitted below.

 Write us either a short quote or 1-2 paragraphs about your path to recovery,  and include a photo of yourself (can be one of you with your chapter, family, or doing something you love, make sure this is a high-quality image).

OR

Send us a video! Film no more than 2 minutes of yourself sharing about what recovery has done for you, how you got there, and how YPR plays a role in your recovery.
