We can help them all …. ONE AT A TIME.
WHY WE DO WHAT WE DO?
Glorious Recovery has one goal in mind, and that is to inspire people recovering from addiction to stay in recovery and go all-out for long-term recovery.
Individuals in early recovery often experience intense substance craving due to imprinted memories of use and changes to the brain’s reward system. The Glorious Recovery team works very hard to host frequent events that are extremely fun and diverse. From our own experience, we know that social gatherings full of laughter and human connections are very healing — both emotionally and physically.
In recovery, we often become disconnected from our families and friends. Initially, this is due to our active addiction, and later due to our significant commitment to recovery. We want to stop that separation! We encourage every individual to include their kids, significant others, and friends in their recovery journey, allowing them to enjoy a substance-free life with their loved ones.
Additionally, Glorious Recovery understands that many individuals entering recovery are financially drained due to high treatment costs, the loss of a job, or even imprisonment. We always strive to make our events affordable so everyone can attend regardless of their financial status.
Many people struggling with SUD hide and suffer in silence due to the unforgiving stigma that still exists in our communities. One of the ways we are planning to smash the shame, the guilt, and the stigma is by launching the “Recovery is the New Cool” campaign. It will include apparel, social media posts, blogs, videos, and activities. We are proud to be in recovery because we are not victims, we are survivors of this non-discriminatory disease.
