Celebrate Your Story Matters Day with Odyssey House, the Office of Alcoholism & Substance Abuse Services (OASAS), NYS legislators and hundreds of recovery supporters this Monday in Albany. We’ll be sending a number of our residents to this second annual recovery rally and press event, hosted by OASAS.
Your Story Matters Day celebrates New Yorkers who are living successful, meaningful lives in recovery and highlights their dedication to breaking the cycle of addiction. It’s an important part of OASAS’s Your Story Matters campaign, which seeks to reduce stigma and raise awareness that “prevention is proven, treatment works and recovery is real.”
Two former Odyssey House residents were selected to share their inspiring stories as part of the campaign – LaQuanda and Kristina. Read their stories here or post one of your own.
