Mission: Reshaping how the world views addiction, mental health, people with suicidal thoughts, and the roles of faith and science in how we recover.
Vision: To see the world set free by helping one another. Engaging, educating, equipping, and empowering communities to develop a more empathetic and loving society.
We are here to change the message of shame that currently surrounds anyone affected by addiction, mental health struggles or suicidal thoughts. The Sober Truth Project is making hope and recovery accessible to those in need, and educating communities how to walk alongside those struggling with addiction, mental health and suicidal thoughts. We desire to build a supportive partnership between people who use drugs or struggle with mental health issues and people who do not. We seek to rebuild the message in recovery, finding the intersection of faith and science.
What is our strategy? We have 4 E's:
Why: When you feel moved on a personal level and are emotionally invested in a change, you are more likely to remain committed to that change.
How: We share personal narratives to create a space where acceptance can take the front seat. This way, we are fueled by connection and empathy rather than judgement and misunderstanding.
Why: For a person or community to feel capable of making a change, they must feel confident in their knowledge and ability to make informed decisions. We are committed to spreading accurate information
How: Via our webpage, videos, podcasts, and community speaking events, we provide information about the origins of addiction and the history of the war on drugs, the impacts of addiction, and holistic options for recovery.
Why: For change to be sustained, people must be motivated by their own intentions, grounded by what is meaningful to them, and confident in their own abilities. Science and faith have both shown us that with the right support through empathy and unwavering positive regard, anyone can regain confidence and persevere.
How: Every person carries a purpose but sometimes they need help reconnecting to it. Through engaging in community service and positive interactions, people can find meaning and regain the confidence needed to succeed in recovery.
Why: Once someone is engaged, educated, and empowered, they are now ready to be equipped. Change is hard, so it is important to strategically provide tools and resources for support in ways that feel accessible and feasible.
How: We provide an outlet to raise your voice and seek personal behavior change through community events, service outreach, and improved access to compassionate support.
