Addiciton is a public health crisis that can be treated.
Stigma is the killer - preventing care.
Only a small fraction of the 20M people who desperately need treatment will find help, while 90% of those struggling will be jailed, ignored, blamed and left to fend for themselves.
Center for Open Recovery is leading the charge to end the stigma of addiction by empowering people in recovery to step out of the shadows of shame to shift the public’s understanding, eliminate descrimation and tackle the addiction crisis.
The 'Open Recovery Holiday Challenge' aims to raise money for a media campaign designed to reach those who are invisible and silent.
All across America, there are people, who once battled addiction, that are now living healthy, happy and productive lives, in recovery. Instead of being role-models, the stigma of addiction keeps them hidden and voiceless.
COR's 'Open Recovery Holiday Challenge' is an effort to reach those in recovery who are invisible and compell them to come forward and be open so that we can shatter sterotypes and inspire change.
