Alumni In Recovery is a volunteer program, started in Bergen County, NJ, offering a service to school systems. The young adults participating have a desire to give back to their communities. Our members share their stories in hopes that our youth avoid the path of addiction to drugs and alcohol through better choices. Alumni In Recovery is a safe and reliable group of responsible young people in recovery from drug and alcohol addiction, speaking in schools they are familiar with. Alumni In Recovery’s goal and purpose is to give teens and preteens an opportunity to identify with the speaker’s feelings and experiences, helping them to opt for positive choices along their own paths. Alumni In Recovery Service Members Speak to Students About: The potential path to addiction by providing their own stories. Bridging the gap of misunderstandings around the disease of addiction. Root causes of drug and alcohol use. Dispelling mystification of drug addicts/alcoholics. Physical dependency to drugs and alcohol. The behaviors and consequences leading up to recovery. Hope and support to those affected by addiction. How they live a life of recovery (a daily life of positive choices in action).
