2010-2011 Spotlight Stories

In 2010-11, several individuals were chosen as spokespeople for recovery and for the Your Story Matters campaign. These campaign "spotlights" as they are called, are an integral part of the Your Story Matters campaign, offering a face and a voice to a unified, consumer-driven Recovery Movement in New York. Addiction doesn't discriminate, but neither does recovery. And the faces of the Your Story Matters campaign spotlights are proof that recovery is real.
