Over 21.5 million Americans battled with addiction in 2014 alone. That number is growing every day due largely in part to the opioid epidemic in the United States. With this growing crisis, it’s more important than ever that people are aware of the dangers of drug and alcohol addiction. At Denver Recovery Center, we’re passionate about helping individuals find their voices so they can begin anew with a bright future.

We believe that high school and college students play a strong role in creating and maintaining a healthier future. Through your knowledge, we can reduce substance abuse and addiction across the board. If you have a similar vision for the future as we do, we want to hear from you.

Please write a short essay telling us about how you’re fighting or planning on fighting addiction and substance abuse. Your contribution could be anything from majoring in psychology to helping a loved one get the treatment he or she needs. Whatever your role, we can’t wait to hear from you.
