The Recovery Revolution: Building Tribe in a Disconnected World

CREATED ON SEPTEMBER 12, 2018
IN AKRON

We have found ourselves in the throes of an epidemic, the likes of which we have not seen in modern times.  While overdose deaths rage on, we continue to respond with a system of care so broken, with resources so painfully thin, for folks with a severity of problems so complex - we are tossing folks into a chasm that is fundamentally designed to make them fail - and when they do fail - what do we do?  We cage them.  We take their children away.  We rob them of their very humanity.  Fortunately, pockets of resistance are forming, and together - we have launched the Recovery Revolution.
