Faces and Voices of Recovery
Faces & Voices of Recovery was founded in 2001 at a Summit in St. Paul, Minnesota, the culmination of more than two years of work to provide focus for a growing advocacy force among people in long-term recovery from addiction to alcohol and other drugs, their families, friends and allies. For too long those most affected by alcohol and other drug problems have been absent from the public policy debate.
Since then, the addiction recovery movement has exploded – in the US and around the globe.
AlcoholicShare, Inc. considers it to be it’s main mission to get to information about alcoholism out to all who will listen, and wish to be informed, as alcoholism needs to come out of the shadows and into the main-stream social discussion through education, awareness, avocation on all the large popular Social Media internet networks which millions of people log on to everyday.
Alcoholism is a disease that affect s almost 20 million Americans and for each active alcoholic 4 other family members are also affected that translates into 100 million people in America suffering from alcoholism as anyone will learn in AA or any informed psychiatrist, psychologist or academic on the topic of alcoholism will state that alcoholism is a family disease.
