17 My Vision is... That everyone everywhere has access to vast and varied recovery support services, That no one feels the ongoing desolation of this disease, That those who have suffered no longer live behind a veil of stigma, but rather they feel society s admiration and appreciation for the strength and courage it takes for them to live a life reclaimed from darkness, That they are viewed as people who have taken hold of an extended hand and struggled mightily to reclaim the spark of Divine inspiration and live lives in the light for everyone to see. 17
