The Magazine

Journey launched in 2019 to make recovery from addiction visible by people in recovery and allies. Our mission is to change the narrative about addiction. We amplify hope by making recovery lives, programs and resources more visible. 

We believe that by making recovery more visible, more real, more accessible it will make the conversation more approachable.  

We know that reducing stigma takes awareness, education and information and we aim to provide that with our hope-filled, inspiring, solution oriented magazine. 

We’re intent on bringing the message to our communities and meeting people where they’re at …  online, coffee shops, lunchrooms, car dealerships, healthcare waiting rooms, laundromats, grocery stores, colleges, hotels, transportation hubs and

… in their mailboxes!

Our core values are: 

  • Inclusivity: We respect and value all humans and recovery paths.
  • Optimism: We have a genuine positive outlook on life.
  • Transformation: We believe change is possible.

Our Tone & Voice
