Recovery Stories

The Parent Project – Stories of Recovery

The Parent Project is a series of personal stories shared by young people and their parents.

The Parent Project hopes to:

  • Sensitize parents and teens to problematic substance use and addiction.
  • Create an awareness that this can happen to any child.
  • Promote meaningful and effective conversations within families about how to make healthy choices.
  • Inspire parents to Never Give Up!

Share your recovery story and give families hope that recovery from a substance use disorder is possible.
