This week, May 2-6, is Recovery Advocacy Action Week. 

Recovery Advocacy Action Week provides opportunities to reduce stigma, further public dialogue about recovery and to highlight policy issues that help more people get the care they need for long-term recovery!”Minnesota Recovery Connection

Each day YOU can take action and advocate for recovery on Facebook, Twitter, Instagram and wherever else you’re social!

You make a difference and we would love to see you help us reduce the stigma that often surrounds addictions and mental illness. If Beauterre was where you found hope, then please add #Beauterre!

Monday: #ThisisWhatRecoveryLooksLike

Celebrate recovery by sharing a picture on social media that shows what recovery looks like in your life.

Tuesday: #OurStoriesHavePower

Smash some more stigma by sharing a brief description of your recovery on social media. Go a bit further and share your story of recovery with your legislators.

Wednesday: #CARA2016

Record and post on social media a short video describing why you support the Comprehensive Addiction & Recovery Act, and “tag” your U.S. representative. MRC will edit together a compilation of your videos afterward. For more info on CARA go to :
