Recovery is possible.

Published Nov. 30, 2023

More than 20 million Americans are recovering from substance use disorder. Recovery is possible, regardless of what your situation and past experiences. Your Life Iowa is here to help.

National Recovery Month is an opportunity to celebrate the gains made by those in recovery. When you’re struggling with an alcohol, drug, gambling or mental health problem, it can feel like getting your life back is impossible.

But we want you to take heart in this fact – recovery can and does happen.

It happened for Valetine, an Iowa dad and previous meth user.  According to Valentine, “I like to use everything in my past in my recovery. How I was in my past…I use that momentum in a positive way. I would never back down from a fight in my past, so I’m not going to back down from this fight now.”

Check out his story below.
