A Call for Heroes
The world needs heroes, people who have faced trials and tribulations and have emerged triumphant and ready to help others. The world needs heroes like you.
You have revealed your strength by deciding to help others after choosing to turn your life around. You have overcome adversities and found solutions that others can benefit from. You were willing to face the darkness from your past and have prevailed on your road to recovery. This, however, is not the end of your journey.
There are many people facing similar obstacles who need a hero to help them on their own path. You are that hero, not because of your own recovery, but because you are willing to give your time and share your experiences to benefit those still struggling with addiction.
At the International Quit & Recovery Registry, we are calling for Recovery Heroes to help us help others. We need your help to advance our knowledge so that, together, we can help others succeed on their road to recovery.
Road to Recovery
You're not alone. Hear from others who have succeeded in their recovery.
