carolyn delaney, founder

Hi!  I’ve been in recovery from alcoholism and drug addiction since February 12, 1993

After spending 20 years leading IT departments, making recovery from addiction visible became my passion & purpose

Using every technology resource available – our aim is to make recovery stories and solutions visible and accessible for anyone, anywhere 

We’re not affiliated with any treatment center, religious organization or recovery program

journey has had an amazing group of “hope ambassadors” – dozens over the past year with a strong desire to join our  mission to make a difference in the world by saying loud, clear, bold and repeated that we can & do recover
