We must be united in the war against addiction! My mission is to unite organizations,support groups, and everyone else who needs a helping hand. I am here to educate equip and develop a Recovery resource Network. My hope is that everyone gets the help they need and no one is left behind or alone in their fight for freedom from addiction.

If you are one of the many people who completed the "What Is Recovery?" survey several months ago, please be alert now for a follow-up email or phone call from the Research Project.
Only those who agreed to be recontacted will hear from MyLifeNow@phi.org with the subject line "Online survey." The email will have the unique personal link to your copy of the survey--you'll need this link. If you receive a phone call, the project representative will say they are calling "on behalf of a national health survey." (The project's Ethics Board allows this follow-up email or phone call to be sent only once, so it's important that you follow up as previously agreed. It might be helpful to check your spam box occasionally.)
The Philadelphia Department of Behavioral Health and Intellectual disAbility Services (DBHIDS) partnered in 2012 in conducting this national Survey on "What Is Recovery?," the largest and most diverse study of its kind. A goal is to develop a way of measuring recovery based on how it is experienced by those who actually live it. Preliminary results on such topics as respondents' pathways to and duration of recovery, substance of choice, demographics, and quality of life are available on the Study website here.
The results of this research project can reduce the stigma that confronts people in recovery and often hinders their ability to achieve their goals.
