Everyone's story is different.

“I believe personally that everybody can recover from active addiction, provided enough support.”

Olivia, a young woman with straight dark hair.

“Recovery and getting clean isn't a one-size-fits-all method.”

Remy, a young Indigenous man, wearing glasses and a work shirt.

“Through recovery, I've been able to reconnect with culture and find my identity.”

Paul, a man wearing a collared shirt.

“I think everyone, in order to find recovery, needs to trust in some sort of community.”

Brandon, a Metis man, wearing a sweatshirt that says "Daddy on duty."

“It's about just kind of meeting people where they're at and just talking to 'em and showing 'em that you care.”

Mike, a South Asian Canadian man, smiling. He is wearing a sweatshirt that says "grateful."
