Recovery Stories of New York

This project features five individuals from New York State who are currently in recovery from opioid addiction. These stories show that recovery is possible and serve to inspire others out there.

About the project

This project is dedicated to those who are in long term recovery from opioid addiction in New York State. Stories that are shared are featured in printed zines (mini magazines), a website and an Instagram campaign.

My hope with this project is that I can use my own experiences to fuel a design project that will highlight that recovery is possible as well as inspire other individuals to reach out for help and help end stigma.
