Addicts told their stories in hopes that people come together to support people dealing with addiction issues.

It was part of Steuben County’s ‘Stand Up for Recovery’ event. The program was geared to erase the negative perception of addiction. About six former addicts told their story of how their habit affected them and their loved ones. Various recovery services also set up booths.

The event was collaboration between Addiction Awareness of Steuben County, and Friends of Recovery-Steuben.
