I had the honor of meeting Adrienne at the local International Overdose Day in Pittsburgh in 2015. She is a peson who understands recovery and works very hard to raise awareness and help others.
Adrienne was asked to testify at a hearing to educate members of Congress and their staff about the need for resources to address substance use disorders and the impact addiction has on our communities. The hearing, 144aDay is part of a project by Addiction Policy Forum that took place on February 28, 2017. The hearing was presided over by the Bipartisan Heroin Task Force.
Adrienee is a perfect example of someone that is sharing #TheShine. She is a strong advocate of raising awareness and a wonderful example of recovery.
Recovery is possible, there is hope.
