Join Our Movement!
According to the CDC– “Drug overdose remains a leading cause of injury- related death in the United States. Overdoses involving prescription and illicit opioids take the lives of 128 people every day.” We will no longer stand for this. Something has to be done. We must and we will recover on purpose.
“Recovered on Purpose is not about me, and it’s not about you. It’s about this entire movement of addiction. You know that this is the first time in American history that the life expectancy has gone down? And that is in direct relation to drug overdoses. Drug overdoses have gone up, and up, and up, and up, and it has no end in sight. It’s because everybody in the treatment field, everybody in the addiction field is looking how to help an addict stop using. If you’re an addict and you’re using, I’m here to tell you it’s up to you and the calvary ain’t coming. It’s up to you and your higher power to figure out how you’re going to get out.
You know what you need to do to get out. It’s up to you if you want to get out. Here’s the thing, if you choose to get out, Recovered on Purpose is here to connect you with the purpose, to connect you with the meaning, and to connect you with the reason why you went through all that pain.”
