Recovery IS Possible!
There should be no shame in addiction, no one chooses to have substance use disorder, however society tends to believe it's a moral failing partly because they lack education about what life with addiction truly looks like. It's time we stand together, tall and proud, and fight for ourselves and our families.
MEET EXECUTIVE DIRECTOR
Executive Director: Angie Geren
Angie Geren empowers individuals and connects communities by giving a voice to the voiceless and providing hope to the hopeless. Angie knows first hand the heartache, shame, guilt, and judgment that addiction brings with it and this fuels her passion to bring love back into the equation. Angie’s own struggle with addiction, her daughter’s self harm, and her brother’s death from overdose has inspired her to lobby for better laws, expand youth recovery, advocate for parents, those in active addiction and recovery alike, organize candlelight vigils and education events. Angie is committed to changing the conversation surrounding prevention, treatment, and creating recovery ready communities. Addiction does not discriminate and knows no boundaries; which is why Addiction Haven, an organization that educates, supports, and collaborates with love and understanding is her passion. No one should be so ashamed of their struggles that they hide in the dark and don’t reach out for help. Angie wants them to know there will always be a safe, non-judgmental home for all facets of addiction and for all those affected by it!
