Start Your Recovery Is Helping to Keep People Safer and Overcome Substance Abuse
Mace is committed to empowering people to be safer in their communities. We actively work with people from all walks of life to deliver insight, resources, and personal safety products to meet that goal.
We’re inspired by other organizations working to help people overcome adversity and achieve their best potential. That’s why we want to share some insight into another organization that’s committed to empowering people: Start Your Recovery.
StartYourRecovery.org provides helpful information for people who are dealing with substance use issues — and their family members, friends, and co-workers, too. There is no one-size-fits-all solution to the challenges faced by those who misuse alcohol, prescription or illegal drugs, or other substances, so Start Your Recovery aims to break through the clutter to help people at any stage of recovery.
Start Your Recovery is an online resource that offers people who are dealing with substance use issues a single source of reputable, objective information about signs, symptoms, conditions, treatment options, and resources — presented in a user-friendly format and in language that’s easy to understand.
The organization works with leading clinicians and experts in substance use prevention treatment and recovery from nonprofit, academic, and government institutions—the Education Development Center, The Jed Foundation (JED), Johns Hopkins University School of Medicine, the Veterans Health Administration, Yale University School of Medicine, and more—to present the best information available for people dealing with substance use issues.
Today, Start Your Recovery connects over 800,000 people each year to substance use disorder treatment.
