Together, we can eliminate the stigma and discrimination faced by individuals and families impacted by alcohol and drug addiction. Sharing recovery stories connects community members with one another and empowers those who are still struggling to know they are not alone. Faces and Voices helps educate the public on the challenges people in recovery face and helps to eliminate stigma and educate the public about recovery. All are welcome -- not just the recovery community. Refreshments and a light lunch will be served.
