We believe in their potential. Twenty-three and a half million Americans are living in long-term, sustained recovery, yet stigma surrounding substance use disorders persists. The shame and discrimination preventing many sufferers from accessing help must be vigorously combatted.
We believe it is our responsibility to provide leadership and education for a compassionate North Shore community.
We believe that building a safe, supportive and vibrant society for recovery is the responsibility of all of us in Northbrook and on the North Shore. These are our young men, and none of us are immune.
We believe a life in recovery must include building a foundation that includes work, family, friends, adventure, service, health and wellness, and FUN. A life in recovery must be more compelling than the using lifestyle it replaces.
