Voices of Hope - Story Submission
Your submission to this site must be original and created by you
(not copied), in good taste, legal, accurate and true, non-defamatory,
non-threatening, non-confidential, non-infringing of copyrights owned
by others and relevant for this site.
Unless the invitation for submissions on this web page specifically
states or requests otherwise, your submission should be
non-commercial/non-promotional in nature and should not contain
commercial web addresses, email addresses or phone numbers.
Recovery.org reserves the right to reject a submission
or to edit/delete any parts of a submission that violate this Agreement,
including the right to ban violators from submitting again. Recovery.org
may also edit to improve clarity (e.g., grammatical errors, typos).
For those seeking addiction treatment for themselves or a loved one, the Recovery.org helpline is a private and convenient solution.
Calls to any general helpline (non-facility specific 1-8XX numbers) for your visit will be answered by American Addiction Centers (AAC).
We are standing by 24/7 to discuss your treatment options. Our representatives work solely for AAC and will discuss whether an AAC facility may be an option for you.
Our helpline is offered at no cost to you and with no obligation to enter into treatment. Neither Recovery.org nor AAC receives any commission or other fee that is dependent upon which treatment provider a visitor may ultimately choose.
For more information on AAC's commitment to ethical marketing and treatment practices, or to learn more about how to select a treatment provider, visit our About AAC page.
