You Don't Have to be Alone in Addiction

The “You Don’t Have to be Alone” campaign encourages people to seek help for substance use disorders and reminds them that help is available from family, friends, faith based services, and in familiar faces they pass every day, as well as through New York State’s many addiction services. The campaign features real New Yorkers who are in recovery.
