The purpose of Treatment is Hope is to send a simple message to those suffering from the disease of addiction: Recovery is possible.
Addiction is a disease that takes a major physical, spiritual and psychological toll on individuals and families. Yet, more than half of those who suffer from addiction don’t get the treatment they need. By creating a space in which those who’ve been through treatment can share their experiences through video messages, we are dispelling those fears, eliminating the barriers and opening up a path to recovery to those who have yet to seek treatment.
If you’ve been through treatment and have found a new happiness without drugs or alcohol, please consider sharing your message of experience, strength and hope by uploading a video. Your video could be the one that sparks an addict to seek the treatment they need.
By participating in Treatment is Hope, you will be staying true to the 12th Step: “Having had a spiritual awakening as the result of these steps, we tried to carry this message to other addicts.”
Through the use of social networking, TIH will reduce the stigma associated with addiction treatment and educate and provide hope to the general public on the benefits of seeking help for addiction. Additionally, TIH seeks to motivate the still suffering chemically dependent to ask for help.
The mission of TreatmentIsHope.org is to provide education to the still suffering chemically dependent on the benefits of addiction treatment and the positive message that treatment works. Through the use of social networking, TIH, will allow anybody, anywhere to experience firsthand the video messages of newly recovering chemically dependent persons and to post their own message of hope.
