The Recovery Revolution: Building Tribe in a Disconnected World

CREATED ON SEPTEMBER 12, 2018
IN AKRON

We have found ourselves in the throes of an epidemic, the likes of which we have not seen in modern times.  While overdose deaths rage on, we continue to respond with a system of care so broken, with resources so painfully thin, for folks with a severity of problems so complex - we are tossing folks into a chasm that is fundamentally designed to make them fail - and when they do fail - what do we do?  We cage them.  We take their children away.  We rob them of their very humanity.  Fortunately, pockets of resistance are forming, and together - we have launched the Recovery Revolution.

Recovery transitions

BY DAVID DOUGLAS
@ VOL 16 ON JAN 18, 2019

David's presentation started with honoring his mothers life.  David's mom recently passed and he wanted to ensure the world knew how amazing a woman she was in her life.    David's talk transitioned into a history of his own life from being a young boy with hopes and dreams, all the way to being on the streets in his late 20's with no hope and dreams lost. His presentation followed his path to being a person in long term recovery from a substance use disorder through having access to support from multiple entities along the way. David's story was highly impactful in helping attendees see a real life example of recovery in action for himself, others in his family, and many around the world!
